textbytes, text_bytelist, bytes2text? That sort of thing?

One important snag:

I really like how this implementation would keep the engine from doing any kind
of parsing of utf8 content. However, the cost of that is that the Pd
engine wouldn't
know anything about the bbox of the comment. So we'd either have to
take the plunge
and handle mouse interaction completely in the GUI, or set up some kind of
(probably buggy) algorithm in C to figure out the bbox dimensions.
