Hi Hans

Thanks for your support so far.

Yeah, makes sense.

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)
