[PD] coll object

coll uses a special format to store its data, it always uses an ID, then 
a comma and then the message content. this has some advantages (sorting, 
lookup) but does not work with all textfiles.
I suggest to use textfile or messagefile. or, if you want to use coll, 
then look at the fileformat and save your textfiles, for example like
1, first message;
2, lalalal;
3, and so on;
