For the gui-edit patch that I made some time ago to work perfectly, a  
"state query" command would be necessary. Then it would be possible to  
send the properties of each element to pd, and do whatever you want with  

How about also checking out if there would be any other alternative to  
Tcl/Tk? It's still quite slow, and some not so uncomplicated things (like  
a gui element in a gop) take lots of cpu for what they give.
