Ok, but how about being suppressed? Can it be?

Awesome!!! And I guess one can use this and then don't do anything with the
bang output, this would effectively avoid the canvas properties from
showing up, but my ideal concept would be completely hide and avoid the
"properties" option to be highlighted and show up.

I wonder if it is possible at all... [propertybang] shows us how to change
and mess with it, but how would you actually hide the properties?

Nope, the idea is just try and make an abstraction behave like a compiled
external. I know some people might think that's crazy, ludicrous,
pointless, stupid, counterproductive, shameful and just bad... but... I
liked the idea :)
