I'm still undecided if "$@" or "$*" would be the preferred name,
though. Both mean similar things in bash, but maybe $* would be easier
to understand for the common Pd user, as the asterisk is in use not
only in bash, but as a wildcard character in general. 

OTOH $@ would have the mnemonics of meaning "dollar- at ll". But I think
I would still prefer $* though.
