Hmm. To what extent does MPL get away with that because of the
compile-time vs. run-time distinction?
Incidentally, slist is taken already (SGI's singly-linked list) --
evidence that lazy_list is better than llist. ;-)
I guess I was thinking that if a lazy list ever made it into the
standard library, it would need a different name than list anyway.
Anyway, I'll cut this short -- can't spend all my time in the bicycle
