what was the reason for that?

last time i tested pd-extended, it was definitely not all tilde classes
from zexy, that made troubles, but only [<~] and [>~]. probably there
are some others, that have 'special' chars in their names. however, the
rest was working well. 

even while using pd-vanilla, i used to compile zexy as single-object
externals in order to make my patches as troublefree as possible on
pd-extended. i also used to use the hexloader and, iirc, i could
instantiate [<~] and [>~] without problems (unlike pd-extended, that is
why i switched back to a multiclass binary). anyway, my point is: it was
once working here on my box without issues at all, even if i had zexy as
single-objects externals. what does it need to make it work on
pd-extended as well?
