Right, I'm rofgetting, the "pd $0-x" ends up naming the canvas "pd-$0-x"
which is hard to generate as a symbol. My problem with "namecanvas" is that
one can free or rename the patch (or just free the namecanvas object itself in
the patch) and crash Pd. I still haven't found a clean alternative... so
for now, I'll have to keep the mis-designed "namecanvas" object around for
the forseeable future.

am i missing something obvious or is namecanvas not as obsolete as the
