linear lisp - memory management
I think i sort of get it now. Linear lisp: no circular
references. Every PAIR has a single owner. Objects which do not
contain pointers (terminals) can be managed by reference counts. This
is packet forth.
This brings me to see the very nice thing about functional programming
and indefinite extent and debuggin: it is possible to save EVERYTHING
in the state it was at a certain point, if you want to have a look at
things. This is something i really miss in pf.
