[PD-dev] [ pure-data-Bugs-1190023 ] [select] doesn't always work with symbol selector

So maybe my request should be a feature request rather than a bug.
Static typing is available via [select 0] and [select word]. It would
be very handy to have [select] do dynamic typing.
I have worked on a couple programs (serendiPd and atorat, for example)
that require generic message handling in a big way. The shortcuts like
this [select] one, and the undefined nature of mixed sets of atoms that
start with a symbol, but aren't cast as lists, make generic message
handling quite difficult.
