This wasn't a rhetorical question.
There are three levels at which Hana can be used:
1. hana::tuple in the interface of Yap, resp. in the specification and tests
2. In the implementation of Yap
3. In user code based on Yap (f.ex. implementing transforms)
For which level do you object to a supposed refusal to use Hana?
Because I was talking about #1.
