Actually, the high-level language that mapped most naturally would probably
be APL. There was a guy at TMC who was into APL and I think had an
implementation, but it was never made part of the product.
Meanwhile, someone at the MIT AI Lab also implemented *Logo, so that
kiddies could have zillions of turtles on their screens. :)
