(I am usually not one to try to do *everything* in Pd...)

Another option is to create a small shell script which calls the xrandr line along with starting Pd and the project's main patch, assuming it's for an installation.. If you need to start Pd first, then probably add a small sleep after to give it time to open the windows.
