[PD] left mouse click abuse

This would be a new Put menu operation?

In my dreams Put has several subs under object


(The current behaviour. Default)

Put->Object->Last  or a special Put->Again

(Whatever the last completed object was. Or as
mentioned in this thread, a more general "Repeat
last command" would be great to have (CTRL-R ?) 
Does whatever you did last, at the current pointer


(Here we have access to a name sorted list of all abstractions
and sub-patches loaded in the current space)


(Presents all abstractions in the path in folder view. This
will be very big to navigate in most cases and needs careful
thought on how the menu expands, collapses, truncates names
and so forth)


(I guess this is like Volker describes. It's does not persist
when the application is closed. It is very easy to copy things
to the clipboard just using CTRL-C which is aliased to "copy
to clipboard slot 1", but there are also other slots. Not sure
how to manage these elegantly, but maybe you only need 10 
quick access slots.)
