I don't think that the support for tacit programming in modern APL
implementations counts as "pure SO APL". :) Then again, I'm not sure
what "SO" means, assuming the "S" stands for standard.

Jokes aside, while I'm all in favor of such extensions for tacit
programming (composition, currying, hooks/forks/trains, as in NARS2000,
NGN, newer versions of Dyalog, J), I think proper lambdas are a much
more important and fundamental issue.
