Hey Albert,

Since this is a release candidate, fixes below are minor and cosmetic. e.g.:

*autopatching: when autopatching is disabled objects do not spawn on top 
of each other but rather similarly like autopatching one below the other 
(except that they are not autopatched).
*distinction for pd-l2ork: naming scheme consistency fixes inside code 
and folders pd-l2ork seeks its externals (e.g. ~/pd-l2ork-externals 
rather than ~/pd-externals)
*verbose error reporting is when the pd-gui for whatever reason fails to 
start, you will find on the console meaningful error
*GUI clean-up is again cosmetic

The most important thing I am really looking for is anything that does 
not work, crashes, misbehaves, etc. Revisions right now are not about 
adding new features but rather solidifying what is already there. Once 
we release the final stable release, we can focus on adding new 
features. Right now, I  am aware of creb being broken and this has been 
fixed in git. I need to go through the rest of the 3rd party externals I 
typically don't use to make sure they are also in sync and have the 
latest fixes as some of them I haven't synced in a while.

Many thanks for all your help!
