I guess what I am asking, is that now that it exists for all platforms,
what  in your opinion is the best strategy  for including it in
pd-extended?  Or, is it already included?  

Are there any other externals that package .dll's and .so files in
pd-extended?  Maybe we can look at this tomorrow in LA (if I make it).
