[PD] ~/pd or ~/.pd for user's externals directory

While I don't really have any feelings about this external directory, it
would be nice to have a different properties file from what Vanilla Pd uses,
this way we can have two different setups, and they won't interfere with
each other. Currently, I have one properties file that both versions of Pd
appear to be trying to load, but because the properties file was built for
Pd-extended, loading Vanilla Pd generates errors for everything that it
tries to load, as it can't find those things.
