Hello all,

Is it efficient to send quite big messages to self() ? In my case
message may consist of a list of few thousand integers (not bigints).

Of course i may use state variable for this, but it is simpler for me
to send this message (because exacly the same messages are to be send
to other processes).

Best regards,
Gleb Peregud
