[PD] line~ and vline~ right inlets

The behaviour of the second inlet of line~, and of the second and third 
inlet of vline~, are not documented in the help patches. Only the "all 
parameters in one message to the left inlet" way of working is described 
in the help patches.
The behaviour of the other two inlets is not entirely obvious: one can 
easily guess that they are used to set the ramp time and (for vline) the 
delay; however the fact they "forget" the value after the first message 
sent to the hot inlet is in contrast with the behaviour of most built-in 
objects and hence is not totally obvious.

I wonder whether they are deliberately left undocumented to "discourage" 
their use, with the idea of removing them in the future...?
