usually this is not necessary. As $0 changes with every patch opening,
the dynamically created objects containing $0 must be recreated again
every time. $0 resolves to an actual number in this process (i.e. 1023),
but this is alright, as you can access 1023-array1 through [array get
$0-array1] (if $0 equals 1023 in that session).

I attached a demo patch that shows how it can be done (even without
