here's my reasoning, the issue now is that vanilla is stretching the text a
lot, making the text go over and outside the patch area as in many of my
help files. So this is the visual issue, things like objects, GUIs and text
may overlap in vanilla if a patch was done in extended for instance (and
there are still plenty of those around).

On the other hand, old patches from vanilla won't suffer any issue with the
text and fonts getting narrower, it'll still look nice. So i vote that
vanilla gets to make such changes for the advantage of keeping the Pd
environment more cohesive.
