yes, iirc multiple times.
- [parazit] (used to be shipped with Pd-extended)
- i remember a few patches from the local pd~graz gang around 2004 that
would go into that direction (including self-destruction)
- personally i have used self-replicating, self-renaming and moving
objects in a number of performances [sinusoiddreams]
(much of the iemguts development was driven to implement those systems).

among other reasons, http://www.ioccc.org/

and why would anybody want to use a ring modulator, a 6/8 metrum or Pd?
