Do a Web search for the terms COMPOSE and/or CURRY. Note that if
any of the functions but the last one take more than one argument,
you will need to CURRY that function with N-1 arguments before
COMPOSE'ing it.

For non-associative functions, you sometimes need CURRY-RIGHT and
CURRY-LEFT variations, as well as pattern-matching versions which
result in a mixture of right- and left-currying.
