[PD-dev] atoms not same height as objects?

I think there's only a very stupid, short-sighted reason: since numbers
never have descenders, it wasn't necessary to add a pixel of whitespace
underneath the rendered string.  I was intent on reducing the size of
everything to its absolute minimum.

I was forgetting about (or maybe not anticipating) "symbol" boxes - it's
easy to make symbol box text collide with the box's outlet.  And "|"
characters can hit the bottom edge of the box even away from the outlet.
