(One of the important bits still missing, I think, being the functional-reactive live data stream equivalent of 'tail recursion'. Eg: if a data stream adds a new version but nobody has observed the old version, it should be safe to optimise that as a mutate in place. Under what circumstances can a system automatically substitute a mutate for a create? It feels like a very similar problem to tail recursion elimination for code, but for data. We should probably have this.)
Also, I kind of wish someone would take good old database CRUD semantics and give us a formalised persistent/pure-functional/non-destructive-update variant of that, so we could think through the semantics of distributed objects run over append-only-log stores and the like. Which I once thought REST was aspiring to be, but now I don't think REST stands for anything anymore.
One of the many sadnesses I have about Windows is that there's the filesystem, and then there's the registry, which for some reason isn't a filesystem, and then there's... whatever in heck it is that File Explorer browses, which is not quite the filesystem and not quite not, because it has things like 'Libraries' which have no filesystem representation.
it's just layers and layers of never completely finished almost-filesystem-like-objects, which obscure each other.
