This seems like an easy thing, but I get "cnv: no method for 'float'". 
What message could I send to a canvas to make it red?

That won't do. It seems that the background color of a patch set this 
way, won't "shine through" to a parent. So since I'm trying to make is 
visible which of several instances of the same abstraction is currently 
running, this seems not to be what I need...

peace, love & harmony
