 trying to reorganize the configuration of patches for distribution to
instrumentalists, I'm starting to use the recent "text" object with
its builtin editor from within pd rather than editing config files
with an external editor.

As there doesn't seem to be a way to catch the closing of the editor
window automatically in order to reload the Text object's contents:

It'd be awesome if the editor could get some sort of GOP functionality
(an editable rectangular text area with scrollbars on the parent
canvas), enabling the implementation of dialog windows with editable
text and "ok" and "cancel" buttons in vanilla.

Would that be feasible, Miller?
