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

Oh wow, thanks Dan! I didn't think it would be this easy. I hope the pull request gets accepted. "No method for 'set' " is the error message I get in 0.47, which seems harmless enough.

BTW, I've been meaning to say this for a while: the new readme file is great. It's much more helpful than before, and I really appreciate the work you put into it (and so many other things).

Since [value] only works with floats (and not symbols), I think a set message shouldn't break anything and (helpfully) result in "got symbol but expected float" errors in earlier versions of Pd as opposed to non connections with a missing second inlet.

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?
