That's fine for experienced users who can search for used abstractions
and zip it all up, but what Pd currently lacks is any notion of
"export project" which does all that work for you. 

This is why I still try to put everything into a single vanilla file when
giving patches to teach/demonstrate (rather than for my own use). I just
can't yet make any sensible assumption about what abstractions the user
has got (although that is changing now pd-extended is becoming more defined).
