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.
