But as I suspected it sounds like your intention is to sell pd patches back to the community?

What about using Pd as a C/C++ library and writing the patch that way? Or perhaps LibPd?
Would this allow the patch to be compiled as a stand-alone program? Yes?

The easiest would be if there was a way to open a patch in binary form in Pd.

What I've been envisioning would be to create "modules" for Pd similar to Reaktor's Blocks that would
allow for a more high-level patching and usage of Pd. And it could motivate developers to develop patches
in a more standardized "blocks" form, rather than as unstandardised patches.

Reason, I've been wanting to see modular synthesis properly realised in Pd. But I wouldn't want to
spend effort on developing modules that I cannot profit from, since I could do that using some other platform.

You'd have to modify Pd if you want to be able to run patches and
keep it a secret how the patch works.  I don't think people often feel the
need to do that but it wouldn't be hard to do.

But how do you close and distribute a Pd patch so it's not viewable? Can you open a Pd patch distributed as binary?

I only found this:

How do I compile a Pd-patch to run as a stand-alone application?
