isn't that exactly what has already been done in the last few versions of vanilla?

And if you take a different view of the appropriate things to include, of 
backward compatibility, of the pace of changes, of how desirable a fancier 
'modernised' GUI is etc then there has been a lot of that done in pd-l2ork as well.

The other issue lurking in the background with libraries is that copyleft 
licensing is avoided by vanilla and by those who need to comply with Apple's 
conditions for their app stores and mainstream access to their platform.
