That would be because it's still very much an open area of research  
and nobody's quite sure what it covers.

The one-line answer would be "pure transformations of data structures  
based on passed-in events" --- but that's so general it describes most  
Haskell programs.  One additional part is that it's also a function of  
time... but time can be just one of the events, or a separate factor.
