Can't believe I didn't see this anywhere in the 'newest' queue, because it (a) is incredibly relevant to Arc and (b) has been on the LtU front page since last month---although, it was apparently a repost. See http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/4691 and the previous thread linked therein.

Surprisingly insightful paper, for being such an easy read. Starts out a little humdrum, but really picks up in section 3. Definitely food for thought.

FWIW, I'd submitted it a long time ago: http://www.arclanguage.org/item?id=16698 :) Totally worth looking into.

BTW, I've been interested in how we implement closure-based webservers for some time now (http://arclanguage.org/item?id=17265), so it was interesting to read citations [43,66,80] just above Question 1. In particular, Christian Queinnec also assumes such state can't be persisted (and so eliminates the option of multiple servers): http://www.cs.grinnell.edu/~rebelsky/courses/CS302/2007S/Rea...
