I guess you shouldn't care, because to you, functional programming is
an end in itself, XKCD 1270 style. You could alternatively show an
example, if there are any, but if you'd rather just live the
functional life, who am I to stop you?

Go ahead. Write LISP code that runs in the Python interpreter, and
then bemoan the stack limit. Meanwhile, I'll write Python code.
