short answer: NO.

i just select all the objects that are covered by the canvas _but_ the 
canvas itself and make "Ctrl-X Ctrl-Z" to put them on top of the canvas 
(the inner state of the the so moved copy-n-pasted objects will be cleared!)

the first versions of canvas had this already built in (to be precise: 
it was really "Ctrl-A Ctrl-X Ctrl-V" which was naughtier as you would 
eventually loosing connections outside of the patch too) but this is 
gone (as it pretended to be a solution while it was a dirty hack)

so Ctrl-Z will work
