[PD] Automatically add deken packages to path ?

Deken initially did this, but there are problems with this approach as it partially negates the usage of [declare]. It is *highly* recommended to use [declare] moving forward.

Do you use the Pd Documents directory? If so, the Documents/Pd/externals directory is part of the path so externals there can be loaded via declare, ie. something like Documents/Pd/externals/cyclone & [declare -path cyclone]. This was a compromise, in the end.
