You've raised lots of very valid concerns, but I'm afraid my point got lost.
I wanted to explore what a formula language that would be accessible to
normal users (people who use Quicken -- not users who would be writing
reports in Scheme) might look like.  Don't worry about it.  It's not like I
plan on doing anything about it anytime soon.
