That was *exactly* what I was thinking, thank you for pointing that out so
I can give you a +1

And yeah, 10 years ago was sorta ages ago for Pd, many things have
happened, like the demise of Pd Extended. There's this libpd thing and the
need for it to be more self sufficient. And this feels like such a basic
core functionality that I really wonder why not to have it somehow. So I
really wonder if the reasoning from 10 years ago is still as pertinent now
for the community as whole.
