That sounds great. I especially like your focus on editing objects  

For the path/lib pref panel, the attached is what i got at when i  
- It's super messy and only trying to sketch an idea on how to  
actually do it while learning tcl/tk and getting into Pd src. This  
sketching need no edits to Pd source code but tries to black-box test  
first. Depending on the actual implementation one might need to patch  
s_path.c, hence recompile Pd to do a full test (as opposed to just  
swap main.tk). IOhannes recently got a patch for adding more path/ 
libs into Vanilla that gives more then 10 variables to work with in  
the Tcl side of Pd. A better fix would be to use another format (not  
assumed in my test) then pd_path0, pd_path1, ..., pd_pathN - like a  
'pd_path' array.
