Frankly, on the average machine, almost all important files are in the 
same user account that runs pd. In any pd file it's easy to append a 
line like this:

   #X savetofile .pdsettings /home/matju;

Which doesn't appear in a patch and causes pd to copy that patch over my 
.pdsettings and works even when using -noloadbang. Have fun.

(PS: I don't really have a .pdsettings, I'm just simulating something that 
could hurt...)
