People should not have to write a plugin to have a usable background
color, we agree there. But some people also heavily customize their
OS's colors, or use window managers that have very different color
schemes, so this is unfortunately not as simple as it seems. The
canvas' background is already set to be white by default, but it seems
on his computer, something is overriding that. A GUI plugin can easily
override the thing that is overriding the default in pd-gui.tcl.
