Dr. Flatt, is *your* compiler any good?

So, what you're saying is that at any time that I need a particular
environment, I can resurrect it with a data structure, be that a
struct, hash, anything else?  To get into details, how do programmers
usually do this (which data structure)?  How is this different or any
better than invoking the continuation of the original definition?
