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.
