I would love a proper way for Pd vanilla/core to load libraries into
abstractions. I know of [import] but most of my abstraction libraries
target vanilla installs, too, so I cannot use it. And [declare]
currently is designed for top-level _main.pd-style patches only, so
there's no way to really preload list-abs in RTC-lib-abstractions for

If this issue is solved, the problem of autoloading becomes almost moot.
Well, there still are some issues like the sad omission of "sssad" in
Pd-extended which is not shipped at all but such things are
comparatively trivial to fix.
