Its not implemented. I thought I'd made it throw a type checking error in
that case, but apparently not.
Lines like this are the output of naively trying to turn an arbitrary

It should (although I'm not entirely sure if it actually does) not invoke
the procedure until all of s is set, if you pass in s.
