do not confuse "loaded by default" with "included/compiled/available".
mrpeach's objects _are_ available in any Pd-extended for ages.
they are just not added to the path.

but still there are basics that have to be covered.
you don't explain how to install Pd-extended in the OSC-tutorial (yo udo 
that in the installation-tutorial).

(but then i see that you _do_ explain the concept of hot&cold inlets in 
the "step sequencer" tutorial...hmm)

hmm, but then isn't this "remix" idea _exactly_ about this: just create 
a "library loading" tutorial and remix it into the osc-tutorial...
