Hmm, I don't think I would put it that way.  What I do mean is that I  
don't think I can take on the maintanence of yet another aspect of  
Pd, I am overloaded as it is.  I would like to see good Debian  
packages for Pd, Pd-extended and all the libs, and I would help  
anyone who is willing to take on the project.

For example, I helped Nando create the PlanetCCRMA packages for Pd- 
extended, which is organized this way (one package per library).

I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and  
during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man  
for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers.      - General
