hi Tim,

in Pd, the proper handling seems to be:

'bang' -> [prepend test this]: 'test this'
'list' -> [prepend test this]: 'test this'
'symbol bang' -> [prepend test this]: 'test this bang'
'symbol list' -> [prepend test this]: 'test this list'

Max does it differently:

'bang' -> [prepend test this]: 'test this bang'
'list' -> [prepend test this]: a nop, because Max tends to ignore
empty lists, not systematically, though:
'bang' -> [sprintf list] -> [prepend test this]: 'test this'

Cyclone's prepend imitates the Max handling of bang and empty list
messages (will change this to the Pd way as the default, leaving
Max-like behaviour in 'maxmode').

Max symbol handling cannot be imitated, but that is another story...
