I think you should change the declaration as well - there is no reason why
a function/method which does *not* accept variable number of args should
be declared to do so - it has been confusing a *lot* of people.
Then, add a cast of it to IMP in sendmsg.c, whenever it is returned as an
IMP ... the cast is just to prevent compiler warnings and has no other
If it's Ok with Stan, I'll also cut&paste into the code some more verbose
