I _think_ that this is not possible with Pd <= current versions. And if
it would be possible to override internals, I'd strongly fight this
ability for consistency reasons. It's already hard enough nowadays to
create a patch working on a fair amount of systems with different OS'
and different Pd flavours. The subset of internal object classes should
behave reliably the same on _every_ Pd installation.

BTW: there is a library dedicated to making Pd behaving more like
max/msp called cyclone. Just in case you didn't know it already (though
from what I know it doesn't address the difference of [t]).
