[is it a feature?] De-encapsulation and #format arguments

    Jul 29 2009 | 8:05 pm
    If I have an abstraction that utilizes arguments, and I de-encapsulate it. The arguments at the top level patcher get the stuff that I typed into the box and the patchers at every other level retain the #0 #1 language.
    is this supposed to happen?

      not to be persistent about this. but just to alert you guys, it appears that my strategy of making patches with #0 in them and de-encapsulating them is entirely worthless. I've been exploring the issue a few more hours now and there are more 'issues' having to do with nested abstractions and using #0.
      I hope someone will take a look at this because this strategy has always been very helpful in the past, and being able to do it with #0 would certainly be nice.

      hm. what could work for you is to use a sub-abstraction with the #0 inside instead of #0-ing in the patch.
      this has been helpful sometimes already when programming or updating abstractions because the do work -including their #0 stuff - when opened and edited.

      UPDATE. in addition to the stuff I was talking about before, This appears to be a very reproducible bug.
      Basically if your bpatcher is inside a bpatcher. And you copy the outer one, the inner one's arguments get totally screwed up. It seems like every ten minutes I'm finding a new bug with bpatcher arguments. weird...
