To briefly (I promise! :)) go back to my complaints about strict typing
Is there an advantage to be had by using int/float vs msg? Their function (as a local variable) is mechanically and structurally identical - you plugs your value in the right inlet and your bang in the left, and your msg with an $variable into the outlet. Surely if static typing exists for any reason other than reverse compatibility int/float would provide nontrivial performance gains?
Many thanks in advance
