I noticed that the association in the first line is:

   type => program


  type => 'program

So, does this mean that program is not self-evaluating -- ie. type can
be reduced, and program will be replace with something else? perhaps
more specific type information? If so, an 'I will get to that later'
will suffice for now.

Or am I just misunderstanding something ?

just curious,
