please don't feel offended, but did you seriously test [declare] within
abstractions? i did test [declare -stdpath] in pd-0.40.3 (see my mail in
pd-dev [1]) and it works as at least i would expect it: it adds the path
to the abstractions search pathes only, but not to the parent patch. if
this is _not_ the expected behaviour, then lets define some [declare]
test environment for all different flags in order to avoid declare
confusions in the future.
