No, I'm not talking about saving all states it centrally, but saving
all states of one patch in a single file, and that file *could* still
be in the working directory, but it wouldn't *have* to be.
(Motivation: I use the same patch for different pieces. I can just
keep my state files somewhere I like and I am not obliged to put them
in the patch directory, which might even be write proteced, btw.)
