Edit/View patch without evaluation

hello!
i know vvvv is runtime only but i meet with this situation more and more often: i have a patch with loads of multiple levels of subpatches and several long-time initializing nodes (like collada, assimp on high detailed models) (for example i have a patch which takes more than 10 minutes to fire up) and i need a combination of nodes from that patch (or don’t want to wait 10 minutes every time i open it) so is there a “open without evaluation” option? or if there isn’t do you plan to implement it?
because currently the only way to edit patches offline is through mangling with the XML in a text editor which is nowhere near effective

Hi
funny enough I was going to post the same thing today, it would be just perfect to be able to move and link nodes and subpatches around with the whole thing to evaluate or render anything at all.
