1. Just remember I didn't condemn pictures and images. I said they 
don't scale.

2. To prove me wrong, design a backtracking algorithm and abstract over 
its strategies.

3. I am a firm believer in graph-based (and that implies) picture based 
`interpretation' of your data, your computation, etc. I very much 
believe that the best cs and programmers are those who have deep 
`geometric' intuition (and can express it well in a text-based form).

4. Car is working out an idea of mine that presents class.ss based 
computations via geometrical traces, because I believe in it.

In all cases though, this is interpretation not synthesis. In the 
opposite direction, it's limiting. -- Matthias
