[PD] sending 'vnext 0' to pointer

"vnext 0" is the same as "next" ... "vnext 1" gets to the next _selected_
object, not the next object.  It's got a wierd name because I'm still thinking
about what "next" should do in the most general situation.

next-selected is useful if you want to be able to select an object on the 
screen and get Pd to do something to it programmatically (like play the
selected events in a sequence).
