hi again,

-- 'bang' is a special kind of a message, and in *certain cases*
it is converted to an empty list.  The empty list is, then,
converted by a trigger to the one-element list of '0'.

I really do not know, if these 'cases' follow any pattern...
If they do, then this is a feature ;)

Btw, the [print] object does the opposite -- it converts an empty
list to a bang (try 'x'->[route x]->[print])...
