Hi Jonathan!

(pinging Martin Roth who is currently messing around with Pd and web audio
as well)

Yes I am pretty sure it does implement subpatches.

As for copy/paste that's another problem. I have never seen something such
as copy/pasting graphical objects from one html page to another ... but
nothing's impossible!!!

Something I am more concerned about is the ability to create controls
(buttons, number boxes, ...). I think it wasn't really designed for this
purpose.

On the other hand, even if the whole UI ends up not being a good match,
several of it's components (for example auto layout, and so on) have been
released as separate open-source packages so a possibility would be to
build on top of those.

In the next few weeks, I'll be finalizing WebPd refactor to Web Audio, and
then if you want we can keep in touch and in sync to test this noflo UI in
a pd context!
