yay, more libraries!  If you add a simple patch called "abunch033- 
meta.pd" to the folder, then that folder will be a 'libdir' library.   
That means you can drop it into ~/Library/Pd and it will act like a  
full Pd library.  So you can then do things like:



[import abunch033]


That then provides a way to handle name conflicts, since you have a  
number of common words: timeline, waves, clock, slice, etc.  Here's  
the cross-platform install instructions, just drop the abunch033  
folder with the abunch033-meta.pd file in the right folder and it will  
work (needs the latest nightly builds of Pd-extended):

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
