I'm not experienced with automated patching, I suppose there would be 
three diff files, one for each source file (g_canvas.c,  g_editor.c and 
g_graph.c)? And what happens if someone else changes the source files in 
the interim?

Currently it looks as though the audio rate lines are of width 2, maybe 
that's what makes them anti-aliased. Maybe all lines could be width 2 
and the audio lines striped as in Max.
--or selected lines could go to width+2 instead of changing colour, also 
as in Max.
Ideally each line would have a colour field in its struct so the colour 
doesn't have to be recalculated, but that is a pd-wide adjustment. Also 
the method I used for determining the colour seems to give mostly dark 
brown and green lines, maybe a random colour would be better.
