sorry, but you are 10 years late. we've had this discussion. multiple
times. the conclusion was that Pd now provides the infrastucture to
implement [initbang] as an external.
personally, i think this is good enough, and most likely all we will
ever get.
i'm pretty tired of issues being re-raised over more than a decade.
(it obviously show that there is interest in the problem. but we now do
have a solution and your point currently is mainly that you don't like
the particula implementation of it)

(you probably deserve eternal damnation for such a thing.)
most likely you will discover another issue that has been neatly solved
in iemguts in a week or two. and steal that.
and then you discover that iemguts hsa other nifty things.
and just steal all of them, until you have stolen it all. just for the
sake of "not having a dependency".

apart from that, iemguts is licensed under the GPL-2+.
everybody is free to use it under this license (but note, that e.g. ELSE
is currently not compatible with GPL)
