Exactly, please no tcl plugins for pd floating around the net.
I see these reasons why having plugins is good for us:
- itsy-bitsy code that was not made up on a declared requirement can (and
shall) make it into the main codebase if it proves sense. A question may be
how is it decided - for me it's still better to write up a plugin sometimes
than huff'n'puff trying to push something into the svn that no one needed.
- externals, libs have a chance to modify the Pd GUI in the easiest way.
