pd's [unpack] does not convert. it says "type mismatch".
I think that in retrospect, the type declaration could be much more useful
if it actually caused conversion, but turning any number to the empty
symbol is certainly not conversion.

Just suppose no "i" is used in Max's [unpack] and no int is passed to it;
and suppose no "p" is used in Pd's [unpack] and no pointer is passed to
it; then the essential differences of both [unpack]s should become most
