but of course this can be worked around by proxies: e.g. zexy's
[multiplex] is a c-implementation that eats any message on all inlets
(but the last).
however, in the case of [multiplex] "messages" are acutally treated as
"data", therefore the distinction blurs, but this is because
[multiplex], like [route], is more a "system"-object that is to be used
to _control_ the data-flow, rather than an ordinary object.
