some notes about the state saving system used by netpd:

the state  saving is more a side effect, since the main goal was to
provide a system, that makes sure, that all patches have the same state,
no matter when a user joins a running session. since that was
implemented, it was very easy to use the same system to write states
into files and store them again. the netpd-framework only provides
functionality to save states of single patches. if you want to save the
state of all opened patches, you would need to write your own
preset-manager (which is not that difficult and there are already
anyway, the netpd-state saving system is made for netpd and does only
work for netpd. also i think that other systems like ssad are a bit more
straightforward (though i haven't had a deep look into it yet).

-arbitrary lists
(-and some specialized types more..)

- is not universal, works only in netpd
