I know there are reasons for Mathematica not being a strongly typed
language, but I'm wondering if there are places where a type system might
be of use, and how it might be implemented, or simulated.
One suggestion from The Mathematica Book is that we could create something
Vector3[x_,y_,z_], and test the head of variables to determine if they are
Vector3. I'm not sure exactly where in the book that is, and the Linux
version does not have a desktop search, AFAIK.
