No, I meant to say (:id #@"one two three four").
SEND does some coercion of lisp strings to NSStrings, but I'm not
sure that it does so in the case of non-fixed arguments, and I'm not
sure that it's a good idea (who releases that consed-up NSString and
when does this happen ? In the case of a string constant, does
the ability to sometimes skip the #@ buy you much in terms of
"%@" in an ObjC format string basically means "use the printable
representation of the next arg, which should be an ObjC object."
#@"one, two, three, four" is an ObjC object ...
