GridFlow has a class called [args] which is meant to handle all kinds of 
args, but currently doesn't support that kind of argument yet.

You see, in Pd messageboxes, the comma means "then send the following 
message to the receiver", whereas in GF objectboxes, the comma means "then 
send the following message to the receiver". That's unusual, eh?

The only irregularity is in which object is the receiver: the 
messresponder vs the newly-created object.

To see it as unusual you have to be picky.
