Maybe so. Thanks. For a semantics, I think I'd want a lot more equalities than the representation by itself provides, especially involving <hask>SysCallName</hask>.

Also (raising a new question), I don't see this semantic model at all addressing concurrency, which is a huge semantic complicator for imperative computation. [[User:Conal|Conal]] 08:13, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
