Years ago, an instructor in a CpSc course here stressed the idea 
of a formal language designed for a purpose rather than one 
language for diverse purposes.  According to that approach, I'd 
think of Denis using an interpreter for J or K for his project.  
That would provide the array manipulation and interactivity
he described.  Of course this assumes implementation of the 
language interpreter; not a small matter.
