How to store something very much depends on what you want to do with
it later. For just storing symbols in a sequential way, textfile or
qlist are great. Even messages could work ("add $1"). However if you
need indexed or hashed access to your symbols later, then some other
containers are better, like pool, some of the PDContainers or coll.
