[PD] [feature request] argument for open-msg

when you open a patch by msg like [; pd open mypatch.pd .(
. is the directory, where pd was started from.
but when you read a file with [soundfiler] or [textfile],
. is the directory where the patch is saved.
why this difference?
it is no problem to share a patch with soundfiles, if you share
the whole directory, containing the patch and the soundfiles, if
you specify the soundfiles relatively.
but if you share a patch, that opens other patches by msgs, you
need to specify the path (in a msg or in an external textfile)
of the main-directory in order to have all things work correctly.
i'd propose to add an argument to the open-msg:
[; pd open mypatch.pd . 1(
opens the mypatch.pd relatively to the patch where this msg is in.
0 : takes the pd start location as root (in order to keep compatibility)
1 : takes the patch-root
or is there another solution for this problem?
