vrurg Or we could use a dedicated trait for that. `is pointer`, `is ppointer` or alike. 14:36
Pointer[MyStruct] semantics should be there too, though. 14:37
Pointer[Pointer[MyStruct]] is just too cumbersome, hence the trait idea. 14:38

Variable declarations must be terms as well

Declarations can be part of expressions and yield a value, so they must be expressions, too.

Fix $_ not containing exception in default blocks withing packages

A default handler did not get an implicit block topic ($_). This made the QAST compiler find the comp unit's $_ lexical instead of the nearest one. That $_ however did not contain the exception when we are in a package as package blocks get their own $_. Fix by giving the default block an implicit topic, defaulting to the $_ of the outer lexical scope, i.e. the CATCH block's.

Fix missing sinking of statement in unsunk blocks

We need to call apply-sink on expressions even when their containing statement is not sunk, as the expression might be a sink propagator or sink boundary. Point in case, a block with wanted result will still have to sink its statements except for the very last one.

Add a help function to the repl

Which is basically a call to a "help" multi sub. Which can be set externally with a &*HELP dynamic variable.
This is a concept: the texts need to be fleshed out. The basic idea is that you can enter "help" at the REPL prompt to get some help ... (10 more lines)
