For the record, there has never been said the work is backend-independent
for _anything_. The claim has always been much more modest. It was said it
was backend-independent for R-(matlab)-like algebraic expressions. which it
is. And it is not even main side of the story.

I suspect there are couple of more areas in general math beyond "base" R
algebra where abstractions can also be built and be useful and be engine
independent.

Like i said, the true solution is probably ports of non-algebraic portions
of quasi-algebraic solution (i.e. b + doing something h2o specific for that
work if desired). Smart componentization of concerns may (or may not) go a
long way here (just like in tests).
