An off-topic remark:

I don't know about *functional* reactive programming but from my
experience so far as an iOS developer, I've been *longing* for a
reactive programming system that automates state changes even if not
fully hiding them.  It would be invaluable being able to say
"button2.leftEdge = button1.rightEdge + 20px" and have this equation be
held automatically on changes to the layout of button1 (which might
happen because it itself reacts to other layout changes), or to be able
to say "button.disabled = condition1 or condition2" and have the
disabled status of button update automatically as the truthiness of the
conditions changes.  (The former use-case is actually covered by "layout
constraints", but that's strictly limited to layouting.)

Declarative programming FTW.
