Returned the library books.

Made some more sort-of-progress on the statement of purpose,

Stephen Notley wasn't the only one to be amused by invisible cows:

Looking over Steve and Andrej's Propositions as [Types] paper,
it looks like it doesn't suffer from the same bug as Frank's,
but it's still not equivalent to the fixed-Frank's, I think.
The difference being that you can define functions (A -> [B]) -> C,
but there doesn't seem to be any irrelevant-*typing*
(instead of irrelevant *types* as Steve has) version of that.
Unless perhaps A -> [B] is equivalent to [A -> B], perhaps?
Dubious at best.
