unfortunately Pd's quoting mechanism is somewhat broken, therefore you 
basically cannot use any curly braces.
(for user input, Pd tries to prevent you from entering these illglyphs, 
thus you get the "keycode 123: dropped" message; however, using other 
techniques like [makefilename] or [bytes2any] you can bypass this safety

i guess this is not quite true.
[bytes2any] should work just fine, only if you try to display the result 
in one or any way, the pd-gui will freeze.
