i program quite a lot (either with programming languages and patcher-like
systems) and it's my experience that one often needs to do quick and dirty
things instead of taking the time to design a reusable module.
I find my project folders cluttered with abstractions that i just needed to
encapsule a part of a patch - i think i'm more a supporter of
I don't say that there is a real necessity for subpatcher arguments but it's
probably another level of flexibility.

good gain,
