If you think the above code is composed of two lists of length 1
instead of one list of length 2, then I guess probably we have
completely different views of how to group things as a list. That
probably explained why I feel very strange about your definition in
I'm not going to argue with you on this. I might never see the point
of thinking the following code
a = 1; b = 2
c = 3
as a list of length 2 + a list of length 1, instead of a list of
length 3. If I take your approach, I might treat
as two lists, too.
