that's something that puzzled me with your deken package as well:
instead of putting the plugin into <PATH>/pd-dnd-plugin/, why don't you
just install it it into <PATH>/dnd-plugin? (so you end up with a file
<PATH>/dnd-plugin/dnd-plugin.tcl; with <PATH> in Pd's search path)
no fuzzing around with preferences, path and lib whatnot.
this is how all GUI-plugins are supposed to be installed.

the "pd-" prefix of the github project is probably only there to
organize the repositories on github, rather than meant as the canonical
installation path.

(as a sidenote, i doubt (having not tried it) whether [declare -path]
does *anything* for GUI-plugins, as these are loaded on startup of
pd-gui only)
