Over the years, I developed a way of writing
"non-searching" Prolog that didn't rely on (explicit)
cuts and yielded clear procedural code. I always
thought it could have been a good stepping stone for
the hacker that wanted to get rolling. 

But at the time, Prolog had already imploded so there
didn't seem to be much of an audience for such a
thing. Oh well :-/
