They aren't necessarily generic helpers. For example, two of the three 
HPGL-handling classes don't start with "#" (nor with "gf.") and they don't 
anything that makes sense to a patch that doesn't deal with HPGL plotters. 
This is because it's easier to get stuff installed if I don't make a new 
library for each topic. Making separate libraries doesn't make my life any 
easier in any other aspect.

I don't know why this discussion gets moved to pd-list instead of pd-dev. 
Not particularly against it, but I don't see the point.
