[PD] multiblob tracking in Gem while objects keep their IDs

OK, my apologies to IOhannes for the rant, I was in the understanding that this is how the object works now.
Now that it's clarified that this is a bug, not a feature. It should be evaluated why it behaves differently and if it is worth it to keep the changes or we can go back to the original. Maybe ricoardo can tell us more about the changes? If the changes are worth to keep but can't be compatible to the original i see two options:
1. make ricardos version pix_multiblob2
2. send a message (and second argument) to pix_multiblob to set it to the alternative (ricardos) mode.
What can i do, to help fixing it? I didn't quite understand what you meant at the IRC.
