I think that the "variadic" form would be very nice:

> void sendMessage(short status, short... data)

It allows you to send Sys Ex, too. For example, it can be used for a fixed
initialization Sys Ex message to a device. 

And it also allows you to send multiple short messages directly one after
another (possibly even using running status), for example for (N)RPN's, or bank
changes, (MSB, LSB, Program Change), or drum triggers with a note on followed
directly by note off.

It might be a great convenience for programmers. And it is sort of "natural"
for the serial nature of MIDI.
