I like that. I think I even know how to have it internally use Tyler's
technique to avoid creating an uncontrolled memory burden in the wrong
place. I will try to define an interim semantics of join to accommodate
either technique. I don't think this will be hard, and should allow us to
switch later if desired. May I forward this correspondence to the e-lang list?
