[PD] dollarsigns in GUI objects

right, you can either escape it (\$), or simply write a hash (#)
in the properties dialog, but then you cannot save instantiated
abstractions, because the gui objects have their own saving
functions which know of the instantiated parameters and not of
the template form of parameters (unless you save the template).

If you do save an instantiated abstraction -- and 1) it should be
allowed; 2) it is very easy to make such a mistake accidentally
(by pressing Ctrl-s instead of Ctrl-w or Ctrl-e or even wanting to
save the parent patch while abstraction window is active) -- then
all your parameters are gone.
