And instead write an easy-to-understand explanation of how to deal
with the current situation re. externals, namespaces, nameclashes,
library-loading and path-settings when your book is about sound design
first and when a lot of these issues are still in flux? I'd rather use
[expr~] a bit in the book, as your book will definitely outlast the
current situation (from what I've read so far).

Oh, and when [abs~] becomes part of Pd-vanilla, patches using
[markex/abs~], [zexy/abs~], [cyclone/abs~], [creab/abs~] are in

Note that I also think, the math objects (abs~, pow~ etc.) should be
part of Pd, and probably symbol2list.
