Hi Eric,

I've been struggling with the review; however, I still have
a number of questions about the design. That's why I
haven't been able to make a review that I'm reasonably
sure would be justifiable. For instance, I've had problems
understanding the difference between a proto expression
and a grammar and summarizing that difference in some
sort of succinct formula. My last attempt was:

My tentative conclusion is that a better
design, more along the lines of algebraic morphisms,
would make proto easier to understand. The only way I could be
reasonably sure of this would be to try and prototype this.

Since that would take *way* too long, I'll just jump to
that conclusion (and possibly several others) in my review

and wait for your response about if it's not workable and why.
