One question -- WHY???  The raw data belongs to the object.  It might not
even be accurate if a verb is supposed to be handling it.  Alot of times, as
previously mentioned, _msgs are set to lists and the verb picks a random
element.  The raw data will break the verb that tries to display it.  It is
rare to really need raw data.  In fact, it is so rare, there is only one
verb in the Paradigm core that actually needs raw data.
