 From my point of view, if libraries are going to be bundled with Pd- 
extended, then that library needs to be included in Debian. My  
development effort is to making it easy for people to make,  
distribute, and install their own libraries, so they don't need to be  
included in Pd-extended to be easy to get and use.

The video libraries tend to be the hardest for people to build  
themselves, so it makes sense to have them included in a pre-packaged  
way.  But Matju has done a good job of making Gridflow easy to install  
as a standalone.
