Actually there is only one, well, pool pool in my example, so there's
only one file to save. But you could just as well use several,
wellwell, pool pools. As the pool name is passed as argument to the
abstraction it is all up to the user. 

I do intend however to use "pool subdirectories" (folders inside pool,
not in the filesystem) to organize things and to make local settings
possible. I did not yet think through this fully, but the motivation
is, that I would like to be able to change sequences in my sseq
patches over time. So they would probably need to have their own,
constantly changing data pool. Maybe subdiretories should be organized

pool sseq: 
   step1:  92
   step2:  0
   step16: 60
   sttep1: 0
and so on. Then an external timer (metro) would switch states

But maybe pool is not the right tool here, as that is more like
sequencing and not like statefulness.

Now I remember reading that discussion, thanks.
