iem_prepend does that ... cyclones' prepend prepends the argument to
"bang" (giving "test bang") ...
still one would have to convert the triggering message to a bang ...
something that will add some overhead ...

i thought about something like that, but i think the whole msg object
will have to be written ... it would be the cleanest solution, though...
