just to revive this discussion:
i have submitted a patch to the tracker, which enables the expansion of 
$# (argc) and $@ (argv).

[$#( could be considered as an implementation of [list length] (and vice 

$@ is more useful, as it allows you to pass variable argument lists to 
nested abstractions.
all other implementations i could think of have the problem that they 
only work with 1st level abstractions, like iemlib's [dollarg].

the only important thing left i am aware of, if the possibility to get 
the selector in messages / the object-name in objects.
