  then why don't you just program in Scheme?  sometimes, I think the Lisp1
  vs Lispn thing really _is_ about doing things one way or one of n ways.

  what I really _don't_ understand is why Scheme freaks need to _prove_
  Kent's points.  it would seem much more rational to work very hard to
  _disprove_ all his claims.

  it's election time in Norway.  explains everything, doesn't it?
