It is actually possible to send a variable-sized message with a message box, 
as illustrated in the attached patch.

This simple example may not work if you want to send both lists (starting 
with a symbol) and meta-messages and preserve the integrity of both, but I 
guess it could be improved, I just meant to keep it simple.

Am I using some 0.40-only feature?
