Owl Lisp, which is an R5RS implementation without mutation, insta-forces
any attempt to delay a boolean, string, number, or character (which is
not disjoint from the corresponding exact integer).

Let's face it: software is crap. Feature-laden and bloated, written under
tremendous time-pressure, often by incapable coders, using dangerous
languages and inadequate tools, trying to connect to heaps of broken or
obsolete protocols, implemented equally insufficiently, running on
unpredictable hardware -- we are all more than used to brokenness.
