(Miller? .... hello Miller?)
Personally, I would find this very useful ...(maybe I am alone)..  
because often, one has to create external *.pd files which will only 
ever get used inside the 1 main patch....  this means:

1) extra files on the filesystem (for no extra functionality)
2) more difficult to distribute
3) potential name confusion with other externalised patches (ok, that's 
minor.. but it _has_ happened to me)
