Am I understanding it correctly, that these are just a paths
pd-extended will include to the defaults in its settings? Then I'd use 
/usr/local/lib/pd/extra and for home maybe ~/pd/extra or just ~/pd.

The home path isn't important anyway as every user probably has her
own file layout for home. And I don't think that every home should be
standardized, I like it if all my friends' homes look different.
