i always find it most inelegant to use gui interaction for dynamic
patching. will it work is you ever want to run your patch in with "--nogui"?

a solution for deleting objects (including the abstraction itself) is
using iemgut's [canvasdelete].
after loading the object, you can send a message to a canvas to delete
an object by index:

[delete <ID>(
[s <canvasname>]

obviously this is not Pd-vanilla any more.
