It's a GUI abstraction that responds to mouse interaction, so, like a
slider, if it's in edit mode, I don't want it to respond to clicks and
stuff. This abstraction is based on an external that gets mouse
interaction, so it needs to know if PD is in edit mode or not when it is

So, how can a slider know what mode PD is in?

Sure, but there are other ways to instantiate an object, like when opening
a patch or with dybanic patching, where PD won't switch to edit mode.
