Just so. So when you call (apply fexpr a b), the variables a and b are
evaluated to S-expressions, and then the fexpr may or may not decide to
evaluate the S-expressions further in terms of some reified environment.

Big as a house, much bigger than a house, it looked to [Sam], a grey-clad
moving hill. Fear and wonder, maybe, enlarged him in the hobbit's eyes,
but the Mumak of Harad was indeed a beast of vast bulk, and the like of him
does not walk now in Middle-earth; his kin that live still in latter days are
but memories of his girth and his majesty. --"Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit"
