[PD] Outlet on 'struct' object

The selectors I'm aware of (and the mouse behaviors that trigger them):
click (vanilla 0.42): click the object in non-editmode
change: stretch or move an object in non-editmode
select: click an object or drag-click/highlight several objects in editmode (or select-all)
deselect: click away from the object to remove the blue bounding-box in editmode (or select-none)
displace: click and drag the object in editmode

All the above work with [drawnumber], but [drawsymbol] prints "drawnumber_motion" to the console if you click and drag in non-editmode.

Clicking somewhere in an array outputs lists for each element, but I can't figure out what they point to.

I also remember seeing "activate" and "delete" somewhere in the source code, but I don't think they are implemented yet.
