that didn't woirk, my pd has a pd_deken.tcl file in a tcl folder outside
the extra folder, that's the one that needs to be replaced, so it seems...

but if I replace it by the renamed file from the link you're pointing me,
well, I get no new behaviour.

and what do you mean I "obviously can't use that"? I can't test the
creation of the user specific folder? Then it's pointless :/

Too bad, I also wanted to test that :/
