Personally I wish those things would be renamed using the kind of simple
alphabetic characters that work as file names on any OS ('a', 'b', 'c'
etc...). For instance "greaterthan", "lessthan", "and", "or"; then some
aliasing method could provide a means on those systems that can handle
it to refer to them as '<' or whatever).
There are still files in the svn repository that make it impossible for
me to update the Pd svn on a Windows box, since tortoise svn at least
abandons the update at the first error. (Files with * in the name.)
A previous attempt to solve this was the "hexloader", I think it failed
because not many people can recall the hex equivalent of characters like
'<' in less time than it takes to do something else instead, like [expr].
