Check [list-len] in the [list]-abs collection for a pure Pd example,
or use [length] from zexy.

[pipe] cannot delay variable length lists. [qlist] can.

Or you can for example concat the list into a single symbol and
un-concat it later, you can try to use pointers instead of list -
[pipe] can delay pointers - or you can build something similar to pipe
on your own using [del] and [list] etc.
