jMax's [fork] is weird because you can't stretch it in all versions of
jMax. I'm not sure it was even a bug: it looked to me like the feature had
been removed willfully.

Otherwise I don't want the stretching of [fork] to cause extra outlets to 
appear, because I assume stretching an object doesn't change its 
behaviour, which has a use in the case of [fork], because you can use that 
in order to have outlets spaced the way you want.

I think that even though GF's [fork] only supports 2 outlets, it should be
as many outlets as one want. e.g. [fork 4] would make one with 4 outlets,
and $1 would default to 2.
