Hi Laurent,

I still write contracts for all of my functions. Actually,  I often
use the contract library, but for the moment, a good comment will do.

;; interpretation-show : __ -> void
;; Send a message to the editor to delete or add a child.

The result of 'send' in both branches of your 'if' is... well, I don't
know for sure, but it's probably void.

And then you call the function, and invoke it, in your callback:


This is the invocation of a function with zero arguments:


and this is the invocation of the result of that function:


Does that make sense?
