like i said, i'm not sure intuition exists....

What's quite certain is that *claims* of intuitiveness exist.

But do they only exist as a reason for justifying the use of

point of view, would it be possible to offer two introductory
streams, one functional and one imperative, and let students
choose and/or transfer early?

How could students tell the difference between having problems
programming and having problems using a particular kind of
language?  Perhaps this distinction is not important, they
could simply try another approach and see if it makes any
