[PD] repeated subpatches

What if there were a new kind of subpatch, like [pdx subpatch-name] to distinguish the duplicatable mirrored subpatches from the regular [pd subpatch-name] subpatches?  This would prevent any incompatibilities with earlier patches.  Of course someone would need to come up with a better name than pdx.

no pd doesn't do something like that. abstractions need to be available
as separate files to be reusable.
however, i remember miller has mentioned that he plans to allow
(reusable) abstractions inside the main-patch.
however, this has been a year ago, and it seems to not have made any

(but probably he has just forgotten it, so your mail might remind him
and it could get implemented for 0.40 :-))
