Very good idea, thanks Roman!
Some difficulties I'm having:
- I don't know how to set the label of [cnv]... is it possible at all?
- (ATTN: Ivica) [hsl] seems to have the bounding box (?) miscalculated in
l2ork so it doesn't GOP when it's less than 2-3px from the border of the
parent canvas. Checked in Vanilla, it works as expected ([hsl] can be
placed to the very border and it will GOP).

Interesting indeed.
Actually, I don't need the label to send a bang any more, because [pmenu]
won't pop up when the click happens inside a subpatch, so I need to put the
triggering object in the toplevel. (I might still hide it under the GOP
BTW, is it theoretically possible for a GOP object to display a menu on the
toplevel (stretching over the GOP area of the subpatch where it is)? If
yes, I'd eventually try to hack the pmenu code.
