[PD] saving state of a patch

Hi Atte

The best way to start using memento is to get a patch that works, copy
and paste the guts into your own and adapt.  That is, providing that
memento works at all on your system.  There is a guide on footils.org
that should get you started with the ideas behind the system.  It
works fine for me (I don't have pd handy right now so I cannot offer
any specific pointers).

An alternative is apparently part of the pdmtl abstractions

I saw a presentation on if bu have not yet tried it.  It is, arguably,
simpler to adopt than memento.
