[PD] Handling numbers read from a file

Thanks all,

I have summed up the ideas and created an abstraction containing 
[textfile] with an extra counter to keep track of the pointer.
When requested to step back, it first gates the output, rewinds, then 
bangs [textfile] until it reaches the one previous position.

This is probably least efficient among the mentioned solutions, but is 
compact in size while maintaining compatibility with other messages 
understood by [textfile].

I will post it here if I the performance reasonable in my project.
