[PD] opposite behaviour of [delay]

While we're talking about ways to limit output of message delays (etc.),
check out also the [debounce] abstraction in extended.

Alexandre's attached idiom is quite common in other areas, too, like
protecting a [readsf~] from all input until it has finished playing, or
halting all input to a synth abstraction while it is generating an event.
One strategy I like even more is finding a way to route all the incoming
information intended for the object in question back out for further
processing (perhaps another delay or readsf~ or synth abstraction is open
and can accept the event).
