Hi Brian, that was my doing, I slipped that into Joachim's abstract to
call attention to the fact that he is using HOLCF. I agree with you and
felt a little uneasy about the "logic" myself but used it because that's
the traditional reading of the L in LCF (which I would indeed call a
logic). But in HOLCF "library" is not a bad reading. Maybe even Library
of Continuous Functions? Will reword the abstract.
