Ok. Let's get concrete:

1) How do you code the Hello World program in Arrow?

2) How do you code the (recursive) factorial program in Arrow?

3) How do you code the meta-program which transform this previous
   recursive program in an iterative one?

I agree with many postings on Tunes, but I believe that it is not that
easy. Basically, Tunes is about 22th century computing science and we
are still in the 20th. [[I'm paraphrasing what a famous physicist told
about a recent physical theory -probably superstrings]]

a Happy New Year to everyone!
