[PD] rjdj is gone, robotcowboy is coming ...

[expr] / [expr~] are C externals which must be compiled and statically linked on iOS as dynamic linking is not allowed. This is against the GPL, so I can't include GPL code. However, as my app is open source, I can use LGPL code.

Patches, on the other hand, are simply text files. The GPL requires that users must be able to freely update/modify GPL objects. Obviously you can't do that with a statically linked library, but you can with a text file. All patch abstraction libraries will be in the Documents folder where you can update them over WebDAV. The app simply adds any folders it sees to the search path, although I'm considering [declare] as a standard of practice.
