I was thinking of whether or not the standard patches shouldn't simple be 
builtin but anyone playing with an OPL3 these days is sort of by definition 
going for the geekness factor I guess. From that viewpoint, external patches 
do sound better...

Sounds great (assuming that I'll still be able to load the .sb patches into 
my OPL3 by just specifying std.sb and drums.sb ofcourse).

I believe that at that point you by the way might also make a simple 
"sbiload" enough, with the names defaulting to "std" and "drums"...

(and a -2 switch to pick std.sb and drums.sb even on an OPL3)
