Claudio, talking about lists, I've seen you have implemented support for case lists.

If I'm not mistaken, at the moment they behave as normal lists: do they have some special propriety you are planning to add?

I just realized the module that has commands for composite objects is completely missing from the wiki (another thing to fix...), no wonder you are asking what they are. It's just a few I found useful, like RHEAD gives you the head of the reverse list (last element). I'll add that module to the wiki so they show up.

As far as case lists: they are not the same as regular lists. A case list is assumed to have multiple values of the same variable, so operations between them are not the same as regular lists.

For example { A B } { C D } * would normally multiply element by element { A*C B*D }. With case lists, something that could be A or B multiplied by something that could be C or D creates 4 different possible outcomes: {A*C B*C A*D B*D }. This is mainly used internally to evaluate expressions with variables that could have multiple values. Just assign each variable a case list of all possible values and EVAL will return a list of all possible outcomes of the expression.
