I'm convinced this definitely needs an external, or a fix for not needing
to send |map 0, map1< in the first place. As discussed in that thread, the
problem is that using the '*donecanvasdialog*' to change GOP parameters
doesn't work well because things aren't redrawn.

so, yeah, perhaps we can open an issue/request to include something that
expands and improves dynamic patching, such as a new message method that
makes using '*donecanvasdialog*' obsolete.
