We're not talking about the structure of pd-extended, we're talking about 
the name. I say that it's better to call it "pcap" within Pd, meaning the 
embodiment of the original "pcap" as a pd thing, and outside of Pd, it 
should be known as "pd-pcap" instead, the hyphen meaning "pd's pcap".

If you put any GPL code together with BSD code, the overall license will 
be GPL, because you have to follow the terms of both licenses at once, all 
the terms of BSD are in GPL, and none of the other terms of GPL are in 
BSD. This doesn't change the license of any piece of code automatically, 
it only changes what you can do on the whole project, as long as you keep 
any GPL pieces in it.

Bernardo, maybe we need that you explain yourself.
