I have a suspicion that capturing and saving dynamic extent in this non-linear or tree-like fashion is likely to be a bad thing, or at least potentially challenging to performant implementation, for what gain I know not. Your previous statement suggests that all major implementations right now evaluate delayed expressions in the dynamic environment of the first FORCE, and not at the time of the creation of the delay thunk. Going against this is probably also a bad idea. -- Aaron W. Hsu | arcfide@x | http://www.sacrideo.us Programming is just another word for the lost art of thinking.
