Aha... what this tells me is that the "savefn" and "propertiesfn"
really shouldn't have been in the widgetbehavior structure (shared
by all text objects) but in the "class" structure, with exported
functions declared in m_pd.h.  I'll try out a version of that for the
next "test" release.

In general, at least one and possibly several major upheavals will still
be needed in g_canvas.h in the future... I hope someday to be able to
export a stable API for writing GUI objects but there's much work to
do first.

The first big revision is to make it possible to delay graphics updates so
they interefere less (hopefully not at all) with real-time computation.
A second, possibly even bigger one, is to modularize out the TK code so
people can plug in other GUIs such as WXWorks.
