[PD] Symbol editing, date and time questions

Cool. I have two questions now.
Does openpanel destroy depth-first? It won't complete the cycle here until I 
choose a file, but once I do it prints the extension ".trs" before the 
truncated filename. I know sometimes [print] works differently depending on 
depth-first, but this are two distinct branches; and the second one fires 
before the first every time. If the middle bang is rerouted to the "
sequencer.ji" message instead of the openpanel, it prints correctly.

I'm also not sure how I can reassemble the individual stuff into a single 
symbol again. [pack] is the old standby, but I don't know how many inlets it 
will need.
