[PD] preventing abstractions from opening ?

if there are no gui objects (also number boxes), nor subpatches
in your abstraction, you may try to use graph-on-parent feature
with adjusted screen width and height properties of the graph
(e.g. 80x20).  Such a box, unlabeled (add a comment on top) but
with visible inlets and outlets, is protected from casual clicks
-- one needs to use a popup menu to be able to open it.

This is a stupid workaround, likely to break in future Pd versions.
In the longer run, it would be nice to have all sorts of user access
restriction options (like edit lock, etc).
