This language will focus on form population and printing, much like
a pdf "fill-in" form.  I'm using the 1040 as a sample application of
the language, because it's familiar to most in the US, and it is a fairly
demanding testbed for feature requirements.  There's no plan to focus on
tax forms specifically, however.

In a few experiments using DrScheme, it looks like the unit form requires
"Pretty Big" language.  How would I use this in an embedded environment?
