[value] is like a detached, remote right inlet of [float] and [value]
is like a one-element [table]. However it's not a send/receive. It
could be made to act like one with a little abstraction, but then you
soon realize, that maybe you don't want to restrict yourself to just
sharing one float, but want to store lists and symbols and then you
start wrapping [list] with send/receive instead of decorating [value]
and then finally you end up with where I also ended with [ssssad]. ;)
