moin all,

I just tried it out, and [symbol ,] doesn't act as a message separator
for me (pd 0.39-1), but with a bit of trickery, I can get the "real"
symbol "," (as opposed to "\\,") that [any2string] creates to separate

[set foo $1 bar(
[ (  /* dummy message box */
[print haha]

... does in fact print:

haha: foo
haha: bar

... whoda thunk?
