Hi Hans Thanks for your support so far.

I'm not so sure about that. Personally, I find "objects" confusing for describing shared library files, since it seems to be more often used to describe instantiations of object classes, at least on Pd mailing list and on #dataflow. I still think that "external" fits very well for external libraries (which is what they are). Also with naming I am more concerned about consistency than with newbie friendliness (hoping that the former will be the base of the latter). OTOH, pd-zexy which is included for a long while now also talks about "objects". So I happily adopt your suggestion, since it somehow seems already established. (OTOH, pd-motex talks about "externals" again) hm......
