[Openmcl-devel] To send or not to send

This is not a high priority issue for me, but I thought it might be of  
general interest.

RME (whom I presume is Ralph Emerson) commented on a recent ticket of  
mine (#516):

"I would recommend that you don't use SEND, which is basically obsolete.
(Yes, the Objective-C bridge chapter in the manual is horribly out-of-
date.)"

I was disappointed by this because I kinda sorta like the send syntax  
better than the straight ObjC syntax.  There are times when:

(send foo ns::snoz :baz bar :bing boff)

just feels cleaner than

(#/snozBazBing: foo bar boff)

especially when there are a lot of arguments.  Why is send being  
deprecated?
