are you talking about canvas-locality (something Pd has no constructs  
for), patch-locality ($0), or hierarchical locality (something like  
[block~] does, and which many text-based languages do, e.g. {int foo;  
if(2>1){float foo; /* ... */ } }

also, do you want to be able to build abstractions that have the same  


using externals like iemguts makes it trivial to have all this, but  
probably the idea is to have all this in Pd-vanilla (i haven't  
followed the entire thread yet, due to problems with my mai filters)
