There is no one saying we have to abandon any of the libraries that  
are included in Pd-extended.  I am saying that I cannot keep up with  
all of the maintenance of all of the libraries that I currently  
maintain in Pd-extended.  I need help with that.  I have taken on many  
libraries which have no other maintainer.  For things like PDP, PiDiP,  
etc. I hope that people who actually use them will maintain them, and  
I can help where I can.  I barely do anything with video, so I hardly  
know how to test PDP, etc.

Even better, the people working on pure:dyne packages and people  
working on Pd-extended packages can merge efforts, get them into  
Debian, then there will be no difference between PDP/PiDiP/etc whether  
its included in pure:dyne or Pd-extended on Debian, Ubuntu, etc.  We  
are already well along that road.
