I think I'm beginning to see the picture and I have to work on it
more. Data definitions and design recipes. I finished all the
exercises from earlier 10 sections without them, but now I see how
helpful they are. While being blocked on 11.5.3 I started working on
the next one, about deep-lists, and used the design recipe approach
seriously. It made the dl concept so easy! Thank you all!
