By that term I mean a course with roughly the aims of SICP, which is to 
use the power and flexibility of Scheme to explore a number of topics in 
a way that is particularly pleasing to, say, good juniors/seniors or 
exceptional undergraduates/sophomores. HtDP can work for a broader range 
of readers. Some in the previous categories dismiss it as too simple or 
too slow, but I don't think that's accurate. I learned a lot from it 
when I read it almost thirty years after I wrote my first program. --PR
