[PD] declare and abstraction

I second this. So far, I've been putting abstractions / libs in a top level folder and add a declare to them in the main patch. I *only* use [decalre -stdpath] in an abstraction as a simple replacement for [import] in vanilla.

Yeah, this is what I do. A similar setup:

        lib_declares.pd <-- has one big [declare -lib lib1 -lib lib2 ...etc] inside for all the needed pd-ext externals
        ... etc
    Unit-Control.pd <--- main pd patch that opens and closes song patches
       Song1.pd <---- [declare -path . -path ../../libs/rj -path ../../libs/rc-patches] + include [../../libs/lib_declare.pd]
       Song2.pd <-- same deal
       Song 3.pd <--- loading some of the shared samples via ../../samples/drums/kick1.wav, etc
       etc ...
        drums/kick1.wav etc
