The problem is that I didn't know if I should get further with the
eager regime or not (and well, it was 3:30am). With further I mean
having a complete language with every thing seen so far working on,
and with the eager regime I did not achieve it.

I did not have a concrete question, I just needed some hint to see if
I was following the right path. In fact, I solved my problem using
lazy regime without even being completely conscious about it and
before reading exercise 6.6.1.

Your answer does really help, I will keep on working with the eager
regime, as the lazy one makes sense to my mind as it is now.
