I'm pretty sure that there is only one "special" name that you need for a function and that is the setup entry point for the dynamic library that contains your external/externals, which is named after the file it's in. So, you could rename the setup function for the timbreID class because if your library calls it, it doesn't matter to PD what it is called. Then rename your whole library and it's setup entry point to timbreID, and then you should be able to have [timbreID/timbreID]
