[PD] a couple complex number abstractions

Great work! I'd suggest modeling fbar's approach and making a
*-help.pd file for either each of them, or the whole group at least.

Also, even if they seem trivial, if you are making this library of
abstractions for something like CVS (which would be GREAT), it would
be nice to have the conjugate, addition, and subtraction also.

Thanks for sharing this!
