You can use relative paths inside the object boxes, like [abs/aaaa] or 
so.  I got tired of this quickly and keep all the patches for each 
project in a flat directory.

I think recent Pd's have a system for adding paths in patches, but I've 
never used that feature.  Also I don't know if [abs/aaaaa] would 
conflict with Pd-extended's namespace system, not using Pd-extended myself.
