hmm. actually, this isn't doing what i thought it was..
i don't really understand how it's working. what i want is an abstraction
that is able to determine whether a given $-argument in its _parent_ is
specified or not. at the moment, [d-default] works in such a way that i can
go [d-default $2 50], and if $2 in the current-level patch (ie the parent
of this instance of [d-default] is not specified, it will output 50.
can you explain the [1(-[makefilename $%d-test] voodoo? my intuition is
that [makefilename] ought to outlet '$1-test', but according to [print]
it's actually outputting \\$1-test, which looks like some kind of funky
escape sequence... over my head in any case.
