But an uncompatible one! And I'm not sure if it actually would be
great. I do rely on this very often and on the character of a [pd
subpatch], that it is just a curtain to hide things from view, but
that it has no semantic meaning at all. 

I like having the arguments of the surrounding abstraction available
inside the subpatch without further work. Also it is important to be
able to $0-send through subpatch borders, but not through
abstraction-borders. I see a subpatch as a full part of the patch that
just isn't visible (or is, through GOP!)
