I've read the sparse documentation on 'dynamic message' calls and I've
experimented a lot and still cannot figure out how to do something that
should be simple:

I want to build a message like this:

                       cellObject cellLock: aBoolean

where cellObject is to look like: cell1, cell2, cell3 ..., or cell9

I can build up cellObject like this:

                        self perform: ('cell', cellNumber asString) asSymbol

but I can't figure out how to build the full message with the key selector
"cellLock:", and the value 'aBoolean'.
I've tried everything I can think of based on the terse documentation, and
anything I can find on the internet, which isn't much (including this

Any help would be appreciated.
