I think you're being a bit too harsh and panicky here. Maybe you're an
expert in language design and can teach the whole subject, but I can
only formulate my questions based on the spec, which, by the way, is
incomplete. The first half is still in revision, and the second half
isn't published. Neal has been very affable to field my questions,
which won't win an award for great technical achievement, but I might
give him an award for patience and virtuous responses. What you call
"frivolously constructed" examples, I call "simple" for the sake of an
easy conversation.
