This would allow you to write bonafide Pd objects in snd.  What  
language they are written in would be transparent to the user.  They  
would behave just like objects.  They could be bundled into libraries,  
they would work with the system path settings, they would work in the  
newly developing namespace, they could have their own help patches,  
etc. etc.
