[PD] difference send and using msg with ";"

i don't know if there is a technical difference in efficiency, but there
is a difference in use. at least before 0.40, using [; $1 $2( was the
only way to achieve a settable send.
there is also a cosmetic aspect: if you want to collect some initial
values together at some place, it is much nicer to have only one message
box, where all values can be stored instead of having a

[s value]

construction for each value.


|;                /
|value 34         |
|somevalue 127    |
|othervalue 57    |
|yoyo 1___________\

looks much nicer and is easier to edit, isn't it?
