Guessing you mean [rm $1(
I also often use [list prepend foo]-[list trim] (which is the vanilla 
equivalent of [prepend foo]) instead of [foo $1(, because, though for 
one single "$1" value it is exactly the same, I consider it (rather 
questionably) to be more elegant in that it works for messages of any 


(some number)
[list prepend set]
[list trim]
(some numberbox)


(almost any message)
[list prepend set]
[list trim]
[my message box(

I just like the fact they look the same.

Note however that the letter is not 100% general: "foo bar" and "list 
foo bar" will both put "foo bar" into the message box.

Of course I don't know if Derek uses that for the same reason as I do :)
