it's a (very stupid) hack to prevent "$" from being expanded by the tcl
(the iemguis - btw not only the labels but also the send/receive names)
- replace $ with # (rather than the other way round) to communicate
between GUI and Pd-core; after that, the symbols are transformed back -
which is why the "#" (which wasn't transformed in the first place) gets
replaced with "$").
the correct way would have been to just properly quote the dollars.

before you start doing that, please detail your plan on how to not break
all patches that rely on "#<number> from being expanded to "$<number>"
