thanks to everybody for the suggestions on a licence for pd-patches!

i think that i'll use the gpl, though i have not yet decided on the
exact version...
it allows free sharing, and to include other work without having to
think too much about any licence-issues/compatibilities.
and it can not be mistaken for 'public domain' too easily.
and if someone wants to use anything for a non free purpose,
i will have to be asked to 'dual-licence' it, much like it is the case
with the cc-license. the only caveat might be the case when i have
used some other gpl-work, and someone wants to make an non free app from
it. (this person then has to ask a few people for permission to
use the code...). but that is of course much better than not to be able
to build on other gpl-code at all. (and it does not happen that often
