I take your point, but it's making an assumption that map, filter, and lambda are 
going to be used for business logic.  In my case (see original topic) would you argue 
that what I'm trying to do is business logic or presentation?

As for HTML-like stuff vs. business stuff wrt to functional expressions: Do you object 
to CSS, XSLT, and XPath?

I think I can see why the ZoPerl discussion is so vociferous... ;]
