I was working on a new version but I constantly get interrupted with
"more important things" I have to do before I can finish :-) ...

It is actually a pain. I was getting closer on the last iteration.

I don't even think there is a completely standard way of loading them.
And you probably would not want _all_ of them always loaded on startup
(memory/cpu usage perhaps?). And individual packages would not be able
to automagically add library loading commands when installed (or remove
them when uninstalled). As far as I can tell pd is not designed with
packaging in mind :-)
