[PD] '$0' in messages again, another proposal? (Was: Pd 0.52 test 2 is out)

I don't think that's really useful. I think it's really bug that message 
boxes accept "anything" messages and I would opt for removing it:

https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/issues/1491 (I remember I had 
brought this issue up somewhere, but apparantly didn't open a ticket on 
GitHub until now.)

Then the only selectors you could possible get are "float", "symbol", 
"list" and "pointer", which is not too useful I guess :-)
