yesterday when i went home i was wondering about (i guess) the same 
thing: could sending [foo bar( to [unpack s s] be actually considered a 
bug in the patch (for sending a non-list to [unpack]) and "unpack" 
itself (for accepting non-lists)?

the help-patch clearly speaks of "lists of atoms", but doesn't mention 
other messages at all.
