Interface between the timeline and its action patchers

The tiCmd object receives messages from the timeline and passes them to a patcher which is serving as an action. It is analogous to an inlet object (but note that inlet objects do not work with the timeline). It takes the following arguments: first, a message selector which is a symbol that serves to identify the tiCmd object. The selector is followed by any number of arguments that to specify the expected types in the message. Each type specifier argument produces an outlet in the tiCmd object. If a type in the message contained in the timeline is different than what is specified in the tiCmd object, tiCmd tries to convert it. If it doesn't exist, there will be no output at the corresponding outlet. In addition, there are two outlets which send the message bang, the leftmost (triggered after the argument outlets have fired) and the rightmost (triggered when time passes the right edge of the message box in the timeline track).
