Some more ideas: 

* use the [sprinkler] external from CVS 

* use fromsymbol/tosymbol rsp. l2s/s2l to change your messages to be
  just a symbol, then use prepend from Cyclone to prepend a set-able
  send-symbol, send this to [; $1 $2(

* Reformat and send your messages by using OSC. OSC can send lists of
  arbitrary length, you can easily build the targets with makefilename 
  and similar objects, then prepend the lists to send by the target.

* Rethink your logic: Is setting the sends really necessary? Do you
  really need arbitrary length? Of course sometimes it is, but
  sometimes it is not.

Those are just some ideas - what you should use depends on the
particular problem at hand.
