"local" send/receive

    is there any way to have send objects that only send to items within the current patcher and/or its subpatchers?

      pvar ? or use #1_send_to_some_destination where #1 is a unique
      argument you provide to your subpatcher, or, if you are lazy, use
      #0_send_to_some_unique_dest where #0 is autmagically unique for your
      sub patcher.

      yeah.. pvar doesn't really work exactly like i want, since it's analagous to value instead of send.
      i'll try the #0 thing (thanks, by the way.. i didn't know about that). it'd be nice to be able to keep the names clean, but not really necessary. still, i may end up writing externals to do this eventually, but it'd be nice if someone has already done it..

      if you download v001 there is a very simple set of abstractions I
      made that use a slightly cleaner 'namespace', so you can have
      subpatcher.movie1 and subpatcher.movie2 or whatever you want as send/
      receive targets. Feel free to hack the shit out of them :)

      Here is my ForwardMessage. I use #1 to create local names within instances
      of an object. This way the send/receives are local but not private.
