Yes, that's probably good practice.

Hm, maybe it could be nice to at least have the possibility to reset a
key, and the "SSSAD"-receiver kind of represents the right, cold
inlet. I tend to think of [sssad] like a variant of [list] and

OTOH the syntax "SSSAD vol 0.5, vol bang" looks nice.

Attached is a different approach for comparison: Here I introduced two
new messages for SSSAD_ADMIN: "setonly KEY" and "saveonly KEY". It may
be cleaner to reuse the original messages and check if the user
supplied a specific key: "set KEY" to only set this key, but I didn't
manage to patch this (in a clean and simple way) that quick.

In the near future there will be some more SSSAD_ADMIN messages I'd
like to support: "setlocal" and "savelocal" to save to receivers
called "$2-SSSAD_ADMIN" where $2 will usually be the parent's $0, to
allow saving of all/some [sssad]s with canvas-local scope.
