[PD] colored arrays?

I hate to ask, I thought I should at least suggest a couple of things - to
have a "foreground" color variable for the graph as well, and have the
option to make it display as an opaque region rather than just individual
dots?  A certain other dataflow language does this and I found it extremely
helpful when you are looking at anything other than black and white graphs.

Another thing I liked about a certain kind of graph in this "other language"
was that it had this little pencil tool where you could click on the graph
and it would change the array wherever you clicked to whatever value the
mouse was at.  You didn't have to first move the mouse over the existing
point and then draw (this is a constant pain!), you could just start drawing
on it.  This would be a really nice feature that would round out array and
graph functionality well in my opinion.

Although to be fair I am pretty sure something like this could be
accomplished with data structures as well.

Thanks for the work you've been doing, exciting changes being made.
