oops. sorry.

that's what i meant (see the example). if you have strong typing you need it
everywhere, of course. but i think you should be able to have a list of a
certain template (rather than just basic types); maybe template could always
be substited for type. (or maybe not).

hm... good point. actually it's just as easy to write a wrapper that
translates stdin/stdout to sockets or the other way around, so it doesn't
matter which of the two we choose. probably stdin is easier to code too, so
i withdraw that suggestion.
