how comes that it is 'unkown', which objects are in the subpatch? either
it is known, because there is a finite number of different kinds of
subpatches or these are created dynamically by messages to canvas. in
the latter case, the content of the subpatches is know, because it was
created by another patch. so in either case the content is know. this
also means, that you can put the list of known objects in one or more
messages and thus can be saved by ssaad system.

(sorry, if i missed an important point of that thread, but i just can't
think of a case, where a list of objects is unkown)
