  Oh, I see, the point of this exercise is to prove it impossible, not
  to actually solve any problems.  My mistake.  I thought were were in
  constructive mode, but it is apparently important to find ways to
  make things _not_ work.  I'll chip in with "Even that won't work if
  the power cord isn't connected.  How does Lisp solve _that_, huh?"

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
