d'oh, right.

Well, I use it in order to say that the help-file of [gf/string_<] is 
really named "gf/string_0x3c" as one of the steps to bypass the big fuck 
of hexloader, its inability to handle all cases because pd won't let it 
do, the inability of win32 to handle "<" in filenames, and the inability 
of svn-win32 to continue a checkout after finding a "<" in a filename.

I don't remember : is hexloader supposed to handle the case of 
sethelpsymbol at all ?
