Or even better, just copy the whole folders, then the namespace  
prefixes and library loading can work too.  If not, you can do  
[declare -path] (right? or that broken).

Ideally, pure:dyne would use the same library layout as Pd-extended  
so that patches will be compatible.  We talked about it in the past.   
Otherwise, we get yet another distro/file layout working against us  
to the struggle for broadly compatible patches.
