That's exactly what I'm talking about. The most important/central parts 
might have been rewritten, but much of the code in the 'pd-gui' process 
hasn't been touched at all.

This kind of claim involves a distinction between « rewrite of the code » 
and « rewrite of all the code » that might be clear in your head but is 
misleading to nearly anyone who reads your announcements.

I am *not* talking about this.

Ok, let's put this way : the way you said it and the way you still say it, 
you give credit to the pd-extended team for things that the pd-vanilla 
team has done well before pd-extended started existing.
