GridFlow also uses proxy inlets. There are simpler examples of proxy 
inlets within pd itself. E.g. all [list] objects have it.

Basically you need to create another object that will be the "slave" of 
your main object, and then create an inlet that will use that object. The 
second argument of inlet_new is for that: the inlet appears on the first 
argument's box, but messages will be sent to the second argument's object. 
In that case you pass 0,0 for the other arguments (which are usually 
symbols, but here are null pointers to mean "not applicable")
