That's [1] how programming looked back then.

That said, and jokes aside, the list srtucture (i.e. something
consisting of head (a thing) and tail (a list of things, possibly
empty), born in Lisp land, has established itself throughout many
influential programming languages (Prolog, Haskell), although
they don't tell you how it's implemented (Prolog) or prudishly
hide it behind some ADT academic talk (Haskell).

(Now please language fans: don't take anything here personally.
Consider smileys plastered over it everywhere, like this ;-P
