Sorry for the delay.
The point of my original article was that there is a strange correlation
between schemes evaluating the operator before the operands and the schemes
which need infinite memory to carry out the ((call/cc call/cc) (call/cc
Larceny seemed to be the only exception to that observation. However, as
you point out, Larceny is not an exception. This is more puzzling as it
apparently makes the correlation an 1:1 mapping: Schemes evaluating the
operator first are the schemes which need infinite memory for that loop.
I wonder if there is an explanation for that, or if missed something.
