Hi Jared,

Oh -- does Elm have a denotational semantics? I haven't heard of one. I
just now skimmed the informal description of the Signal
and from the reference to "updates" in the description of "merge", it sound
like whatever semantics it might have, it couldn't be function-of-time. I'm
intrigued with your interpretation. I wonder what it could mean for an
event to be a derivative, especially partial one, and for arbitrary types.
