maybe i miss something:

to it seems _not_ strange to have a working help patch. the declare is 
documenting how one can use the object-class of the external (one of the 
4, 5... 6 ways).

or do you think a user should configure the plist/pdrc/registry first 
and restart Pd before he can use the documentation/helpfile?
