GridFlow also overrides [print] because of the additional atomtypes that 
GridFlow can't register into Pd and that makes Pd behave funny when it's 
trying to print them, among other funny things.

But IMHO it wouldn't be much of an issue if I fixed any undesirable 
divergences in GridFlow's [print]. In that case, the problem would be that 
it uses t_class and t_methodentry, but much of the Pd community relies on 
externals that uses forbidden interfaces anyway.
