Bad idea unelss you provide an ability to view the whole list and insert at 
specific points in the list.

Parentl order is significant in ColdC.

In general it soudns more annoying and complex then just fetchign the whole 
list, using stadnard list ops to modfy, and setting it back.

My 2 cents.

Thought to meditate on:

No two objects in nature are equal, any two apples are in fact quite different 
from any other two apples in the world.

Thus can Math really be said to be True in an absolute concrete sense, 
or is it merely an internally consistent abstraction?
