Well, one of Lisp's limitations is its syntactic uniformity. You get
no visual clues from looking the symbols that make up a program about
what that program means. Curiously, Lispers often tout this
uniformity as an expressivity *advantage*, one that I just don't see.
For maximum expressivity, I want lots of syntactic flexibility.
