This discussion came up several times in the past. So far the people
who didn't like $0 in message boxes always have won. ;) 

I think, now that Pd (0.40/1) got a setable [send] and especially
$-replacement in the middle of a symbol (not only at the start as it
was until 0.39) the need to actually use $0 in a message box became
less urgent. (See attachement)
