That's "Finite Memories Considered Harmful" (was: Re: Is there...)

...as in MIT AI Memo 514, _Design of LISP-based Processors, or SCHEME: A
Dielectric LISP, or Finite Memories Considered Harmful, or LAMBDA: The
Ultimate Opcode_ by those two very fine fellows Guy Lewis Steele, Jr. and
Gerald Jay Sussman, back in March 1979.

AIM 379, _Lambda: The Ultimate Imperative_ by Guy Lewis Steele, Jr. and
Gerald Jay Sussman (March 1976), and AIM 379, _LAMBDA: The Ultimate
Declarative_, by Guy Lewis Steele, Jr. (November 1976).
