It did? I thought the response was that they /both/ calculated fixed
points. This "limit" seems to look for an attractive fixed point in a
fairly straightforward (and possibly naive) way. As a matter of fact,
its only differences from the standard fix definition seem to be:
1) A parameterized initial state
2) A terminating condition (and the necessary type context)
Am I crazy?
