I'm not saying that [select] must not be made to accept both floats
and symbols. Actually I think it would be good if it did. 

But so far, the result when mixing floats and symbols in [select] is
officially undefined. And that's even documented, contrary to many
other things in Pd. People may still try to see what happens when they
mix floats and symbols, but people try to get execution order right
without [trigger] or to divide by zero in their patches as well.
