It wouldn't know whether you want is a [readsf~], a [soundfiler], or a 
saved array (or a set thereof, one per channel). I don't think any of 
those three is a default that makes sense.

Also, how would you make wav.pd have a placeholder for the filename ? $1 
could be replaced in objectboxes, but in messageboxes $1 doesn't have the 
same meaning and it could be a conflict.
