actually i don't see much problems here.
if i create a patch with a [loadbang]->[; pd quit( then the patch will
behave differently during creation time (it will do nothing) and during
runtime (it will quit Pd).
if i want to have the effect at creation time, i can manually bang
whatever is connected to [loadbang].

otoh, when i add [declare -path foo/], this is usually because i found
out that a certain path is missing, and i cannot proceed with patching,
until that path is added.
the current situation makes it really complicated for people who had no
clue what they wanted to do when they started Pd.
