[PD] targetting a specific abstraction for "vis 1"

Hi all,

I have many instances of an abstraction on my patch (each with different
arguments - guaranteed)... eg:

[abstraction 1]
[abstraction 2]
[abstraction 3]

I would like to send a "vis 1" message to *just one* of the
abstractions. But I have only figured out how to open *all* of them with
a message like:

; pd-abstraction.pd vis 1

Does anyone have an idea of how to target just one? I know that each
abstraction will have a unique $0 ...but how do I know what the value of
$0 is from the parent patcher level? ...and even if I did know the $0,
what do I send my "vis 1" message to? ...$0-pd-abstraction.pd doesn't

Thanks a ton!
