[PD] pasted objects now end up under the original object

Why not just move those newly pasted object immediately upon pasting? Once
they have been pasted, they are still selected, and you can move them with
the cursor keys. You don't need to move anything to get at them. If you use
the cursor key by, it will move the objects one pixel. If you hold the shift
key while you use the cursor key, it will move the objects by 10 pixels. I
use this technique to keep patches looking "clean"...
