Get your conspiracy theories ready, I've run into problems using set! on powerpc-linux.

@cwebber You can't tell a variable what to do, they're free.

<examines documentation for set!>

Ah, I was mistaken. You can tell them what to do.

@cwebber shareware variables

Free until you use it 10 times, but then it's $10 for a lifetime license.

@cwebber still closed userspace and the target is datacenter use for non-graphics

@cwebber closed (local to the Let-over-Lambda), passed in (to the fn within the LoL), or ambient/free (defined outside the LoL but in the same or parent scope as it, probably a source of bugs if mutable)?

@cwebber Let's found the National REPL Association, to defend the right to own and use footguns interactively.

free because you're not in the closure, not enclosed, now I get it *nods head solemnly*

@cwebber Not necessarily in languages with dynamic binding. There you can have true freedom (to shoot yourself in the foot).

"free variables" always confuses me, like how free are they? they're bound somewhere else before you even get to the closure you're looking at
