this does not work since pd tries to parse as few messages as possible.
creating a message [float 123( will make pd parse this message resulting
in an atom of type float with the value 123.
however, sending a symbol "123" to [set float $1( will produce a message
that looks like [float 123(
but this message is already parsed (and internally saved as an
identifier "float" followed by a symbol "123"), so this is a no go.
using roman's suggestion with using [netsend]/[netreceive], you ensure
that the message is parsed again (since pd doesn't know what is coming
in over the net)

[atoi] is part of zexy.
