[PD] send receive with several $ arguments

Hi Linium,

Well, $1- style substitution only works when the leading part of the string
is $1 (or $2, etc.)  The only way you can get double substitution is
by nesting abstractions:

suppose "foo" calls "bar b1" and "bar b2"
and suppose "bar" calls "raz $1-r1" and "raz $1-r2"

then $1-z1 and $1-z2 in the four copies of "raz" are "b1-r1-z1", ...,
"b2-r2-z2" in all 8 combinations.
