I see this as an advantage in most situation, especially with
abstractions that want to save their state and that maybe want to save
different states per instance. Also with an external file you can use
the same patch for playing different pieces.

Oh, sorry, I thought concat was something else. Well, *that* concat
can be emulated by [list-l2s] from [list]-abs. Just pack both strings
into one list and send this through list-l2s
