But maybe you can use [until]? You could stop the [until] through its
right inlet whenever you get a "wait"-line in [textfile]. Then restart
it again after the [delay]. 

I don't know if you have any use for it, but another popular trick is
to send a float to [until] to just bang it for that many times.

Maybe [pool] would be better then, or the immensely powerful and
flexible STL-objects in PDContainer.
