The default external objects loader of Pure Data (Pd) maps object names to
filenames and C-function names.
Unfortunately both filenames and C-function names have restrictions (like the
impossibility to include a '/').
This library adds an escaping mechanism based on hexadecimal encoding that
allows one to write and use objects that would otherwise be impossible.
