Have you ever looked at Nova ?

It's never been a branch of Pd in any sense, and it's never been 
compatible with Pd except in very superficial ways : even MAX is more 
Pd-like than Nova.

Integrating GPL code with BSD code makes GPL the overall dominant license, 
as in it has all the clauses of BSD and makes the most restrictions. The 
BSD license still applies to any portions still under BSD license.

The pdextended license (GPL) doesn't say to which parts of the programme 
it applies, and all the copyright/license notices I can find (in a bêta of 
42) are all BSD. Changes & additions to BSD code don't have to be under 
the BSD license, thus if it's not stated, it's somewhat harder to make any 

That kind of license fuzz is tolerated because pd developers have no 
expectation that lawyers ever have to put their nose in the project... and 
even if they did, they would not have the background to know how to fix 
it, or know which advice they can trust. I think that this is true of many 
(if not most) open/free projects.
