In terms of support strictly for *functional* programming, I think
it's true.  Racket is better in this area, but I don't think we're
there yet.  We've got lists, which we all know and love, and now
hashes and sets.  That's about it in terms of functional data
structures, which is part of why Hari and I have worked on this
project - hopefully it will result in a bunch more in the core.
