actually, i've already implemented getting the expanded and unexpanded
$args after a bug reported by liam [7].

so i only need a nice way to be able to set $args.

probably the default (list) message, should unescape any dollars before
saving them (so a [list $ 0(->[list $1$2(->[canvasargs] would set the
first argument to be a $0 (the $zero from the parent patch), and an
expanded "raw" message would save the escapes (so [list $ 0(->[raw
$1$2(->[canvasargs] would actually become [myabs \$0].

i also think that any $arg returned should be a proper symbol, rather
than an A_DOLLSYM or simile.

sorry for all the noise.
