[pd] arguments in subpatches

I think here the idea is that if you are going to use the same bit of
patch in multiple "parent" patches then what you want IS an abstraction
not a subpatch. Why would we make the subpatch like an abstraction when
we have abstractions?

I think args to subpatches are ignored.
