Do you ever use Python? It's not any different.

So, what's wrong with depending on software? And do you actually need to 
remove dependencies so badly, that you'd use that as a real reason (in 
combination with other real reasons) for switching to a different 
language? Well, I think anyone who'd care enough about extra dependencies 
can just delete any files they don't want, that's all.

Are you saying that programs made using puredata are unstable and not 
distributable? That would be a quite bold claim.

What does that mean? I have no idea.
