[PD] Pd in white on black

changing canvas' -bg color (and keeping it changed) is simple

Changing color of the canvas items (-fill color of connection
lines and object text, -outline color of in/outlet rectangles,
etc.) is virtually impossible, because these are hard-coded
somewhere deep in g_text.c and what not.  Some items are
configured explicitly there, some take defaults, and they do not
have grouping tags...

Neither tot, nor editing pd.tk, would do in this case.

Just for fun, though, one could send a tot something like:

tot .^.c config -bg black, tot .^.c itemconfig all -fill white

start editing, and wonder about disappearing objects...
