the dollsym message
  [symbol VT=$1(
is really *equivalent* to the object
  [makefilename VT=%g]
with the latter potentially being faster.

dollargs don't evaluate particularily fast;

 [makefilename %d]
 [symbol VT=$1(
is equivalent to
 [makefilename %d]
 [makefilname VT=%s]
which means that you have to do string-conversion two times.

if you want decent performance you should go directly:

 [makefilename VT=%d]
 [print $1(

(the $1-expansion in the last message is pretty fast, as '$1' is
replaced directly with the atom without any fancy string stuff)
