I see how distributing only one file is simpler than a folder with many
pd files, but having many copies of the same code is impractical and
clumsy. How about an extended file format (.pdz?) that is actually an
archive containing all the relevant files that would be extracted on
the fly at loading time? I can't count the number of software that work
like this, so there is precedent. Am not sure if the added bloat to Pd
would be worthwhile...
