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

If you’re considering cleaning up things of this nature, then I’d add that outlets currently only extend two pixels into objects, messages, etc., whereas inlets extend 3 (and are therefore much easier to see). This is the case on macOS, at least.
If this was by design, then please ignore : )
