That has to be a GPL violation.
On the other hand:* proprietary Pd binary* place for user to enter url of remote repository of packages* Deken exists
This can't possibly be a GPL violation.
I'm not advocating for building proprietary binaries, but this is such a trivial workaround it'd be silly not to mention it.
