I'd be careful exposing the tk canvas api from within Pd.  It's a buggy 
interface, as evidenced
by the off-by-one errors in the data-structure illustrations of Miller's 

For example:
[struct foo float x float y]

[namecanvas bar]

[drawpolygon 0 1 5 5 0 0 -5 5]

[scalar foo 10 10(
[send bar]

Bug: tk draws the points at (5,5) and (0,0) but it excludes the final 
point at (-5,5).

Worse, the docs erroneously describe this non-feature for the 'rect' 
"The arguments x1, y1, x2, and y2 or coordList (which must have four 
elements) give the
coordinates of two diagonally opposite corners of the rectangle (the 
rectangle will include
its upper and left edges but not its lower or right edges)."[1]

Yet 'rect' doesn't actually suffer from this problem: it includes the 
the lower and right edges.
