[PD] Pd 0.39.3-extended on XP:::problems

[range] was just a copy of maxlib's [scale] with the name changed.  I  
did it a long time ago to deal with the name clash with Gem's scale.   
Now you can do [maxlib/scale] so it's unneeded, so I stuck it into  

I should have documented it.  I think that we should figure out a  
good mechanism for deprecation and use it.  There is a lot of old  
kludges that should be deprecated.

On my install of Pd-0.39.3-extended on Windows, range is showing up  
in flatspace also.  Plus the 'oscx' and 'deprecated' libs are loaded  
by default.  It sounds like the settings aren't setup.  Try running  
pd-settings.reg again.
