You can't do that, because then [route] wouldn't be routing set-messages
anymore. That's one of the big recurrent problems with Pd: 'set' and other
special options conflict with the anything-method in objects that have a
An anything-method is a behaviour defined for all messages, except all
other defined behaviours. If there's a set-method or anything else, they
create exceptions to the use of the anything-method. It's not just a
matter of compatibility with older versions, it's also about keeping the
rules simple and free of undesirable exceptions and cripplings. Everybody
wants [route set] to work (even though many might not realise it yet).
