[PD] [openpanel]/[savepanel] directory, [cd]

Hi all,

I noticed the nice, new feature in [openpanel] and [savepanel] to specify a
directory to open in.  This saves much, much time navigating to the right
directory.  But it seems to only work if  you specify the full path or the
directly lays in the relative path of where pd was opened from (which is
almost never the case on Mac, and hardly ever on other systems).  It should
open from anything within the relative path of where the patch is.

Which brought me to another question; is there any way currently to do a
'cd' or 'pwd' in pd? I tried:

[pwd (

but this has the same problem of openpanel and savepaned; it gives you the
path that pd was opened from.

[cd /home/full/path/to/patch (

doesn't seem to do anything, and would be a workaround if it did.
