Hmmmmmm. That actually looks quite nice. Hmmmm.

What do other people think?

Maybe we could do that, but personally I think that analogies with  
Prolog are not that important, because hardly anyone knows Prolog  

The most important thing to me, though, is that we need to finish this  
thing, and finish it soon. The fewer old decisions we revisit, the  
better. There's a number of things I dislike about isa/ako, but  
personally I don't feel it's worth it to revisit them.
