If you like, I can merge it with the clippable GOP branch because there is at least one place where a manual merge may be otherwise necessary. Lemme know.
Keep it as a separate branch.

Namely, do we want to disable global key press detection (via key/keyname/keyup) while user has focus on gatom and iemgui numbox and typing into it? The precedent for doing so is because that is how editing a text object text works.
I think that was just a side-effect of the way I'm handling text
object activation in the DOM, and nobody ever objected to it.
> The argument against would be that text object behavior is only available in edit mode whereas gatom and iemgui numbox content editing is also available in runmode. My gut tells me disabling other key press detection may be the right way to go but am not 100% sold on it. In L2Ork Tweeter it is somewhat annoying even though I implemented keyboard disable option in there exactly for these kinds of reasons.
Seems like we want a "focus" event to listen for here. Can't remember
if activation is instance-wide. But if it is it could be a message to
the "pd" receiver, perhaps with a gpointer to the gobj that has just
been activated and a "1" or "0" for activation, deactivation.
Other thing it makes me thing of:
1. If I have a patch in runmode that has two gatoms, shouldn't
pressing `<tab>` in runmode glist_grab the first one?
2. Shouldn't pressing `<tab>` again glist_grab the second one, and so on?
3. Shouldn't pressing `<shift-tab>` traverse backwards for glist_grab'ing?
4. If one agrees with 1-3, then shouldn't *all* iemguis, gatom, msg
(to trigger it) and some select GUI externals have a method to respond
to being called up in the `<tab>` order?
I think it would just require adding something like a "__focus" method
so they can be queried using zgetfn. Then add a key method for classes
like bng that don't have one, so we can respond to spacebar and/or
enter to trigger the object.
