[PD] Noop message.

On the same token, [route noop] would output the original message from
the right outlet if it's not noop.
I guess, depending which object was doing the receiving, the left
outlet wouldn't have to be hooked up at all. If it was going into
[pack], for instance, or [append], I believe they store old values for
cold inlets. Otherwise I think you'd still need to go through a
[float] or [symbol] to send the previous value with the bang from
route or select, in which case just using "bang" in place of "noop"
might be faster, no?
