cantModify could work too, as it has in other xTalks for years.

I was merely working on the principle of "Best is the enemy of good", or 
as an old manager used to say, "Best is the enemy of results." :)

The window mode has been the answer for object-creation tools in the 
engine since long before I started working with it.  I'm sure there's

start with what was and spend my wetware clock cycles on something more 
ambitious.  Maybe I'm just lazy.
