[PD] Outlet on 'struct' object

Ok, I tried it on the sequence example, and it only seems to output
stuff in Edit Mode. Is that correct? Plus, it also seems to only
output 'select' and 'deselect' messages. It also seems to repeatedly
output them when you 'select' and drag an object.

Is this a new feature? (I seem to remember reading something about
mouse events for structs in 42) Are there any examples of how these
are used?
