 Internally, tables/sets/vectors/records are all handled separately at many
 locations inside the interpreter (tables and sets sometimes are handled
 together, and sometimes aren't). I believe we should be able to unify much
 of that code in some form, like by moving more into a parent class

 I'd like to see most of these `if ( is-it-type-A ) … if ( is-it-type-B )
 …` go away.

 That would also make it much easier to implement a real list type.
