hmm, so:
for your people at UCSD you would like to have externals installed into
~/pd/extra and ~/pd-0.46-4/extra and ~/pd-0.22/extra depending on which
version of Pd you are running.
for yourself, you would like to have externals NOT be installed into

since these two behaviours are contradictory and cannot be resolved
automatically, the only option is to ask the user every single time they
are going to install a library via deken, at the potential cost ofthem
shouting "but i told you this directory already three times this
morning" at their computers.
