I see your point but wouldn't  a "include" feature risk the same? I think we
all agree that inclusions would be extremely useful for managing larger
ChucK projects and I think we agree it would be a waste of time for me to
re-write something you already created. So; I'd point to your site or
re-distribute your code (assuming it would allow for that), packing it all
up in a archive file.

I'm not sure I'd have a real problem with plugins, assuming we could have
cross-platform ones. Popular/stable/useful ones could be distributed with
ChucK or even merged into it.

These are hard questions but right now I feel that a central repository of
"useful things to be shared" will be unavoidable and indeed a useful and
probably fun thing to have in the future. For UGens in the current situation
I still think a "experimental" and a "stable" version is the most practical
idea on the table so far.
