Now that's a bold statement :-)

BTW, what is the advantage of canvasname? Seems to me that the only reason
it exists is because having multiple instances of same abstractions makes it
difficult to differentiate between them, which in case of pd-l2ork's
preset_hub/preset_name is completely a non-issue.
