hexloader allows to load externals whose name contains anything bbut
(trailing) "~" is about the only non-trivial character that Pd had
always supported in externals, the problem is more along the lines of
"*". (so you got a detail wrong, but i guess you figured the greater image).

i haven't decided to not include it, but as the main author of the
hexloader patch i know that there are some issues when it comes to
loading of abstractions.
