Well, why not just use a [loadbang] to load the state file. I do this
a lot. You may need to specify the full path because of Pd's way of
handling paths or use the "path finding" externals mentioned here in
the past (I don't remember their name, something like "pwd" or
"getdir") to get the name of the patch's directory.
