I agree...  there's no way (as yet, anyway) to get a pointer to the last
created object in a patch (for instance) so taht you could store it and use
it later to delete the object.  Doing this well would be somewhat complicated
and would make the "pointer", etc., objects run slower (stale pointer checking
would be harder.)  

An easier hack would be to give canvases a way to delete objects by numerical
index... would that help?
