I don't understand this. With [cyclone/active], right clicking on an active
patch doesn't report 0 for me... if it does for you, then it's a bug I
guess, please open an issue for cyclone and we'll look into that.

Now, if you mean that if you right click on a patch window that isn't
active, is not that it reports "0", it doesn't report anything, because
doing that does not make that patch window active. But then this is Pd's
business, that's how it rolls, so I don't see how to deal with that unless
pd handles it itself.

Anyway, I got a new object in else: [window] (it's already up in else's
repository). It seems to do what both of you want. I'll schedule a new
release soon, immediately after we release a cyclone update next week.
