[PD] sending a message to a parent only with vanilla (was " naming a parent patch: is this external useful?")

Since you've touched the of sending |map 0, map 1( from an abstraction to it's parent¹ allow me to ask this in the dev list:
The only way i know only with vanilla objects is to use a [namecanvas] on the parent and pass it's name as an argument or through an inlet. Do you (or anyone reading this) happen to know a more elegant way? Perhaps something new recently introduced under the hoods in the latest PD releases, idk

For the record, I guess I should have said I'm deciding to forget about adding such an object to my library, since [sendcanvas] already takes care of this (so we don't need yet another one) and also cause I can deal with this inside the abstractions of my library with vanilla objects anyway...
sorry for the noise

it would probably exist somewhere, specially in [iemguts] of all places, but I couldn't find this functionality there (or I just missed it completely).
yeah, I should have looked more carefully, at first glance I missed it completely, but I dug in more deeply, object one by one, and found out that iemguts has a [sendcanvas] object which also does that :)
so yeah, apparently this is a useful feature for one reason or another...
