Why all objects (mxo, images, …) are duplicated many times in the Max5 collective mxf ??

Why all objects (mxo, images, …) are duplicated many times in the Max5 collective mxf ??

I have a big patch, which is loading dynamically subpatches.
I includes those subpatches in the collective mxf by adding them in the build script with “patcher” command.

The result is a very very big mxf !

After spending some time to analyse its content, it turns out that this mxf is mainly containing duplicates !

See below an extract, created from the table of content of the mxf.
For every subpatch, the same objects are being added, again and again… Why don’t you’re referencing the first instance added in the next (at least for the static files such as executables, images, sounds) ?
