for those who are not too familiar with Pd:
Pd(aka puredata) has a large number of 3rd party plugins (so called
"externals") which are now in the process of being packaged for debian.
for whatever reasons, Pd's externals (which are simply dlopen()ed
binaries) have a "non-standard" extension, namely ".pd_linux" rather
than ".so"

unfortunately, dh_strip will ignore anything that is not +x (which
plugins are discouraged to be) _or_ not ending with .so

therefore, i created a small snippet that will do the stripping for the
relevant files (basically copying the cmdline from dh_strip for libraries)
