Agree, that can easily happen.

I like Doug Gregor's suggestion to put some of the libraries into
"Higher-order programming" and "Extension data
structures" categories, although there might be a better name for the
latter. I've done that, and also a few other refactorings, and the result is
attached to this e-mail - as a material for comments :).

(Sorry, I didn't modified the original document, just created a new one
instead, 'cause I didn't want to screw up the formatting - one of the things
that VS7.0 HTML editor is notorious for).

My thoughts too.
