Yes, all of this is on the wish-list. The wish-list is actually on the wiki
and so you can see it for yourself. This is nice since it avoids requests
getting repeated and it also enables you to dream and fantasise about all
the wonderfull things you'll be able to do in a few months :-).

Any thoughts?

I think it would be great. I've been into generating paterns and sequencing
based on HID input. Right now this is loads of fun and it forces you to live
in the moment since after quitting chuck all those arrays will be gone but
it would be nice to be able to store arrays of paterns as well as parameter
values. clearly coding is expressive in itself and the code is easy to save
and return to but manually setting parameters still has a lot of use and is
often comparatively intuitive. Being able to store sets of such parameters
to a file to later return to would be very valuable.

Right now we could "cheat" and export such values over MIDI or OSC to be
recorded in some external aplication but that doesn't sound like so much fun
to me.
