Is there any reason pd lacks a standard library of commonly used abstractions? I did a search of both the mailing list and forum and it seems the idea has never even been brought up. It would make patches easier to share and understand since everything in the library could have a help file and be common in the community, reduce the number of abstractions/subpatches one needs to open and figure out to understand a patch, reduce the number of abstractions needed to be shared with a patch, and most importantly make getting started with pd easier since it would remove some of the drudgery. Is this just something no one has ever bothered to do? Everyone that sticks with pd likely has a counter abstraction, why not just standardize it finally?
If there is interest and people are willing to contribute abstractions, ideas, recommendations, I am willing to put in the time on packaging, giving everything a uniform format, help files, etc, even some abstractions, but would need the community to actually accomplish this.
