One of the main reasons to rewrite the Falcon engine was to fully support Functional programming at parser level.

There are some extensions, or we may call them "dialect", that greatly rely on functional programming, up to the level of writing entire modules of several hundred lines in functional sequences. Of course, it is necessary to have full compiler support into those long sequences, so that an error in the sequence body gets pinpointed and the compilation can proceed in search for further errors.
