There are many algorithms that rely on empty lists, for example, to
indicate the end of the computation, when removing elements one after the
other, or as a starting case, when adding elements.
Therefore I cannot approve anything like getting rid of empty lists. I
already have trouble digesting that Pd doesn't want to make a difference
between a one-float list and a plain float.
