Hear, hear!  I've said for a long time to anyone who would listen 
(hold still!  It's for your own good)  that all any REAL programmer 
needs are <,>, * and 0.  That is, move tape right, move tape left, write mark
and erase mark.  Presto!  Church's thesis tells us this will suffice for
ALL computation!  Talk about RISC!  Watch out Berkeley.

Excuse me, the doctor says it's time for my electro-shock.....
