Perhaps it would be better to refactor the object / abstraction / binary 
/ loading / namespace mechanism first, something along the lines of an 
old discussion I had with HCS:


Once that is fixed to something less baroque/crufty then it should be 
easier for everyone to go nuts and have their own namespaces without 
clobbering or hogging anything, and make patches more portable between 
Pd variants.

I have no time to work on this for the forseeable future, but it's 
something that needs doing sooner rather than later...
