[PD] heads or tails?

Bryan, all,

I tried your forward external, and it seems to be just what I was looking
for. The makefile wasn't very helpful for MacOSX, to be honest, but the
externals packaged with PD gave enough of a guide to get a working
forward.pd_darwin to be usable. [should I send you a copy?]

And it works. The way it types messages was unexpected, but it seems to
work better with the pd datatype model than my attempts. The only non-
feature that surprised me was that a message list of "pd dsp 1" doesn't
work... but *that* has taught me a bit about the model, which in turn
makes it less surprising.

But so the answer to my original question seems to be: no, there are no
car/cdr message/list manipulations native to PD.
