i think 'sendto' only makes sense as [sendto example.com 6000 10 20( 
that is: specifying both target and data in a single message (as the name is so close to 'send').
I think this is what you want to do anyhow.

I wonder about efficiency though: each 'sendto' would trigger a host lookup, which is probably cached by the OS, but even so might still be rather costy.
