I don't have plans to port it for the initial release, but I'd definitely still like to port it.

Have you made substantial improvements to comment.c in your fork?

The code I've been working from is from the old "miXed" directory.  In that code, 
comment.c is so complicated it would probably take 10 times longer to port 
it than just starting from scratch with the Max docs.  Also, I'm not sure whether 
that code is trying to match Max's interface or whether it's simply an ad hoc 
approach to getting arbitrary fonts to display and interact in a Pd canvas.  If it's 
the latter then I don't want to waste time on it.

Another reason for putting it off is that I still haven't figured out a sane approach 
to handling arbitrary fonts in a diagram where everything is absolutely positioned.  
In fact I only have a minimally-workable approach to handling a single, mono- 
spaced font across platforms.  For example, there was a change somewhere in 
the Gnu/Linux font-stack (relatively) recently that renders fonts (or at least 
DejaVu Sans Mono) noticeably wider than before.  So Windows, OSX, and 
old Gnu/Linux would render a particular line of text sized at "12px" within less 
than a single pixel of each other.  The new Gnu/Linux font stack (seen in Ubuntu 
16.04 and some recent Arch) rendered the same text about 7 pixels wider.
Worse, the newer Gnu/Linux font stack quantizes the "px" sizes such that the 
next smallest size is noticeably smaller.  So in Ubuntu 16.04 I have to compromise 
by keeping the object box the same size and having some extra padding at the 
end-- otherwise users of that OS could end up tightly spacing their object chains 
in ways that cause overlaps on the other platforms.
So... I'd like to get a handle on that mess first, then handling arbitrary font 
families-- as in cyclone/comment-- will hopefully be easier and less prone 
to bugs.
