[PD] best licence for pd-patches?

i heard, and then read,  that GPL patches CAN be run in closed source
systems running libpd, etc.

it's just GPL externals that you can't use without sharing the code.

There seems to be a difference in licensing laws between patches and
externals, because externals need to be compiled into the binary, but
patches are more like "media" which runs on top of that.

I wish i could find the posts i read about that again....it did make it
quite clear why there is that distinction.
