Alright well I just solved this one after a considerable amount of effort.
The best hint I can offer without giving too much away is to try to think of
a way to implement map and filter in a tail recursive manner (without CPS).
In other words, the return value of the call to map (or filter), should
itself be the recursive call to map (or filter).  Writing map and filter in
this manner, the pattern may begin to be more familiar.  If you want a more
detailed hint feel free to email me privately, but I don't want to give
anything away to those who would rather not see any more.
