Yes. Talking about the conceptual idea- that is just exactly what I mean.

Except that JS doesn't have tail call optimization.

Not long time ago JS didn't have many of current features so I suppose that solving the issue U R talking about is just a matter of time.

Thats not 100% true. Safari / WebKit has proper tail call optimization

I definitely agree with you @tyrionfront that when learning to code (frontend or backend), it's super-important to learn basics of sicp. For me, only when I started learning about the basics of cs, JS started making sense, really. While I do understand that if e.g. you want to be a front-end programmer, maybe you don't need to be fluent with data structures, it definitely helps to understand them, even on the basic level!
