[PD] A "set" method for [value]

I was thinking that it could be done through the main inlet using a "set" message, just like the tabread and tabwrite objects. But a second inlet might be good also. What could go wrong?

I always find additions to vanilla useful :)

maybe a design like [send], if it has no argument, then you have a 2nd inlet where you can set it

I suspect the problem sometimes is not being hard or easy to implement, but getting the design right and sure you're doing a nice thing.

You know what would be a really useful feature? A "set" method for [value], so that you can redefine which [value] you're tuned into, like the right inlet on the [array] objects.

Would other people use this? It seems to me that it would be easily implementable and would have no effect on backwards compatibility.
