The idea with [declare] is similar to Python "import".
We have moved away from Pd-extended's "just load everything into the same name space" approach towards a more explicit declaration for paths and libs. This requires an extra step but it also *helps* make patches more portable in that it is much clearer to see what libraries the original author specifies as opposed to "oh I guess it worked in Pd-extedend but I have no idea what externals those objects come from."
