I meant that your point about state being app-specific is also
my experience. So, the problem of how to best build/maintain
state for streaming transformations is app-specific too and solving
it in some platform-independent language neutral form just means
inventing another language (so how is it language independent then?)
which makes me think: why not use the languages I already know.
