[PD] arguments not passed to an external

Is that by policy or design?

In other words, if I send a msd [dsp crash_my_pd( to a signal object that defines its dsp method args using A_CANT, will it still crash?  (Not at a machine with Pd or I'd try it myself.)

A_CANT is used when an object receives a message but the arguments can't be
safely typechecked by Pd - so these messages are refued if sent by the patch,
but friendly C code can call them using a lower-level mechanism.
