[PD] repeated subpatches

I have a patch that contains a subpatch ..... but that one subpatch is 
repeated multiple times. I dont want to externalise it onto the file 
system (messy, I just want 1 object), and I dont want to keep deleting / 
copying the outdated subpatches when I edit one of them.

Does PureData offer an option where all subpatches of the same name are 
always identical? (or something similar?).


[perhaps irrelevant side note] CAD (vector drawing programs) have this 
concept ..... where you can externalise a "cell" or "block" to the file 
system, _or_ you can keep it within the file that you first made it in. 
That cell (even if contained within the file) can be repeated as many 
times as you want and when you edit one of them, they all change.
