Small Mistakes

John McCarthy insists on having a good abstract syntax, and how right he is. It are the small mistakes in the abstract syntax which really careen the compilation process. Small work-arounds pop up to fix problems which just "shouldn't" be there and code starts to look perfidious. And it just takes ages to find why, what, when, which mistake was made.

Refactoring miasmic code.
