I've discovered that the dictionary does not always tell the whole 
story. I'm sure it evaluates literals just fine, but it does not 
evaluate containers. Unfortunately the dictionary tends to illustrate 
the simplest of scenarios for a command, not the most likely ones you 
will find yourself using. :)

The dictionary entry for "send" says:
> Any parameters are evaluated before they are passed to the send command. For
> example, the following statement sends the mouseUp message with 2 as the
> first parameter:
>   send "mouseUp 1+1" to button "Example"
