[PD] gui devel idea: "kiosk mode"

Is it possible to make these messages that can be sent to a canvas?  That's already the 
way one changes settings of a canvas (editmode, clear, donecanvasdialog, etc.)

Also, that way you 
could have a patch my-kiosk-thingy.pd, and when you open it you could have all kinds of 
initialization settings, and a subpatch [pd gui]. When you get all the init values set you 
can send [fullscreen 1( -- [s pd-gui] .  Then you don't need to make a new object [gui].

i think it's probably better to do this via a msg

so basically there would be commands like:
gui-hide- ...

so basically you can put this into a subpatch and loadbang whichever one
you need ;)

may it's better to implement this via gui object which you would send
msgs to ..


or we do this kind of stylie: [; pd-gui command(


i'm not sure which way is more practical ..
