which is a nice hack around the problem, but name another major song 
writing environment that you have to remind where the songs meta data 
lives every time you move the folder :)  right now in bitvitriol you 
*have* to open your song's pd file through its little openpanel wrapper 
object, which then gleans the data directory from that path.... it 
works, but its less than slick.
