the working syntax is [receives, list foo bar], because it takes a
list-message, not a anything.
I'll let you explain what is a « proper replacement ».
Oh yeah, another thing that I hadn't noticed at first. Actually, I had
assumed that [multireceive] was doing something interesting. What I said
about using it in place of [receives] is actually wrong : in my
abstractions, I just can't use [multireceive] at all for managing gui
objects, because it doesn't have an outlet for telling me which thing just
got modified !
Actually, I have no idea why [multireceive] exists the way it is. I can
hardly think of a use for it, when it doesn't allow to distinguish between
Look at the example at the top-left of receives-help.html : you can't do
that with a (single) [multireceive] !
