Use structures and/or pattern matching (see match-lambda in
particular).  Using lists as structures is, I think, quite bad
practice.  You can get away with it for limited cases but it will bite
you in the arse if you change the data format.  In statically typed
languages you can get away it (using tuples though, not lists) a bit
