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

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.
