Probably it doesn't, but I wanted to draw attention to Lout's 
successor, which is based on a functional language, which 
is being designed right now.

Jeff Kingston recently requested comments on his design 
from experts in functional languages (specifically, on
type systems, but anyway).

So, I think there's some common ground between the two

Oh!  I thought "galley" was a common enough 
typographical term that one could use it without
knowing Lout.
