I don't know a good solution for this problem... one possible approach might

- make an empty subpatch, call it "patch 1".

- Send a message, "pd-patch1 ojb 10 10 pd real-patch"

Then, send messages to the sub-sub-patch, using "pd-real-patch"

to delete it, "pd-patch1 clear".

I know that's dumb.  I don't yet have a good way to do this in general...
