[PD] clarification on [coll] object - doesn't seem to be global

Actually I did just look through the text object and as far as I can tell
there’s no way to retrieve an address that’s a symbol - every example I saw
on the help file used a number address or line numbers. I’m not against
using vanilla but I want to lookup parameters by name and the list may
change length. Plus I’m using a variety of externals like iemlib’s vcf,
else’s rm~ soundhack’s delay+ and ceammc’s matrix~. Maybe at some point in
the future I’ll rack my brain trying to figure out how to create these in
vanilla but I can’t say I’d be looking forward to it.
