Yes, students must cross the bridge. But the name 'return' may
make it more difficult than necessary to cross the bridge. I

All functional programmers have problems selling our ware to
such people. Haskell could have benefited from using a word such
to say that a function produces a 10 and a store or whatever. It
could have driven home the point home. Faking to be C or Java
is confusing and may create a backlash. Just admit you're different
-- and better.
We Schemers have different problems.
