normally state saving is used to set variable controllers of a
'hardwired' patch/synth/hardware to a specific state, without changing
the patch/synth/hardware itself. that is why i'd say, that when a
dynamically created patch (more accurate: a patch, that contains
dynamically created parts) is saved, this shouldn't be considered as a
state-saving mechanism.

what frank and i have been talking about, is rather that dynamic
creation could also be used to speed up patching progress, so that
dynamic creation is used as long the patch is not finished and when the
patch is finished, no dynamic creation is involved anymore. such a
scenario would require the ability to create abstractions with litteral
'$0's as arguments dynamically.
