So does canvasinfo:

with a bang method that prints all the canvas attributes to the console for quick reference.
Way easier for the user since each attribute is a method within a single object,
with a standard interface (and if more attributes are needed it's trivial to add them without
breaking anything).  Also easier to develop, as adding another attribute is as simple as
adding a method (as opposed to copy/pasting yet another external class, which is the
equivalent of copy/pasting subpatches instead of learning to use abstractions in Pd).
