It should be not too difficult (?) to have openpanel/savepanel save their
current path in the .pd file when the patch is saved.
It seems to involve registering a save function using class_setsavefn() to
replace the default text_save() with a panel_save() which would append the
path symbol to the "#X obj x y openpanel" binbuf for the object. Then in the
panel_new() routine the path will show up as an extra argument (I hope;) if
it is redeclared as openpanel_new(t_symbol *s, int argc, t_atom argv) and
adding a GIMME to the class_new() arguments.
