Now that is an interesting thing. Faust certainly has an advantage
here, as it naturally expresses parallelism down to the statement
level. But it's by no means the only way to do that.

The 'primitive' is just a description. You can't seriously claim that
GUI packing boxes an hints are anything 'advanced'.
But all of this is besides the point. Which is the simple fact that
the 'architecture' files contain nothing Faust at all. It's perfectly
possible to use them with hand-written C++, done it once to quicly get
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
