Yes, since of the libdir issues.  It didn't make sense to include it  
if it was unusable.

I think you should try releasing it as a libdir that people can  
install themselves.  Pd-extended on all platforms is setup to use a  
global and per-user folder for installing externals:

  GNU/Linux:  /usr/local/lib/pd-externals and ~/pd-externals
  Mac OS X: /Library/Pd and ~/Library/Pd
  Windows: %ProgramFiles%/Common Files/Pd and %UserProfile%/ 
Application Data/Pd
