the point is that, if a text object, due to a specialized savefn
or propertiesfn, has its wb cloned (by whatever means) or defined
from scratch, it is being visible on-parent, while it should not
be.  In other words, it is treated as a graphical object, while we
want it to be handled as a text object.

true... this is something I have been reminded about many times,
after installing several Pd releases... so the goal is, at least,
to narrow dependencies on g_canvas.h.

I would like to know Miller's opinion first...
