[PD] loading non notarized externals in newer macOS (was: [hidraw] pre Deken release)

How about a tcl-plugin (available from deken) that is reusable instead 
of a script per lib.

Something that you open and choose folder(s) to recursively circumvent 
the quarantine in all binaries found. One has to provide the sudo 
password in a pop-up dialog.

This plugin can also be part of deken or can be called by deken.

approach to ask users to decide to run the script themselves, although 
there will be added friction.

if people can use it just fine or if it doesn't work or is a nightmare 
(like asking every time if on external should be loaded).
