hi all !

recently i found it quite inconvenient to allow any user to open a
sub-patch/abstraction from within a running patch (by simply clicking on

since the new release introduced the "properties"-option, maybe it would
make sense, to add a flag for abstraction which makes them non-openable
from within their parent-patch.

thus you could open it via file/open (or changing it to "enable open on
double click" via the properties.)

by the way : would it make sense to create a "pd-play", that lacks of
the editing-possibility ? i just think that it might be more secure in
several cases (to keep users from incidently damaging patches).
