double size of buffer used in stopgap function "escape_double_quotes"

add note in todo about potential loss of data when > 4096 bytes of data
are entered into a message box and sent to Pd

[ ] the socket reader has a buffer capped at 4096. This is plenty for most
purposes, but it may choke if the user tries to enter a humongous amount
of text inside, say, a message box. Pd Vanilla handles this by sending
every single character that's typed into the box as a separate message
(which of course causes other problems, like copy/paste potentially flood-
ing the socket and freezing Pd.) Here, I am sending as a single message
"stringforobj" with the msg/obj box contents as the arguments. If that
message ends up being bigger than 4096 Pd will truncate the message.
A solution would be to send the box contents in smaller chunks-- bigger
than single chars but smaller than 4096. This will complicate the
interface, but the chunks should get sent in sequence so it might not
be too bad.
