I believe that type-sensitive manipulation was certainly being
investigated; however, I can't confirm as to how far it *was*

What intriged me mostly was how it can display infinite data structures
lazily. I think it's certainly a great tool for teaching some aspects of
functional programming: helping newbies to understand and define data
structures, say.
