I was referring to Tim's offlist mail that you quoted, and I got the name
wrong: It's called "ubuntustudio-audio". Tim's error was:

 ubuntustudio-audio depends on puredata

so he couldn't install pd-extended, which "only" provides "pd". I assume that
"ubuntustudio-audio" is a meta-package which in itself is empty, but it depends
on a lot of useful audio packages, so they can be install in one command. If
"upbuntustudio-audio" would depend on pd, not on puredata, than pd-extended and
puredata both could provide "pd" and make ubuntustudio-audio as happy as a dog
with two tails. :)
