For the cetrainty of not closing a patch during a performance or while 
my patch records some important audio in a table, I'd like to put this 
patch in a "security mode": ask me before closing regardless the changes 
in the patch. For all other patches, I'd like to have a "normal mode", 
which means: ask me in case of changing the patch, not data. This would 
allow to use the help in a convienent way _and_ to have an additional 
security mechanism to prevent unwanted losses if I want.

Maybe a pd message would do it? [; pd security-mode 1;(
