such as canvas or background etc
The "Stage" is a well-known construct in Scratch
it is the background sprite and can hold scripts (albeit with reduced types of blocks) - the colour can be changed - it can be loaded with an image
GP's "stage" is not a sprite and cannot hold scripts or have its colour changed or loaded with an image
The main thing in common with them is the ability to use Pen tools to draw over it.
WHY IS IT AN ISSUE
I'm always maintaining that primary target of GP is Scratchers moving on, so I'm after anything to help (or lessen confusion) when they are moving on
If something is quite different in GP, then it shouldn't use same name as Scratch.
Main example is how GP has classes and instances
(We tell Scratchers that these are "like" sprites and clones)
So we should call the background something else in GP and explain its "like" the stage
Alternatively - have a non-deleteable class called Stage :)
