# Linearity

Instead of:

type DmdEnv = VarEnv Demand

we want:

type DmdEnv = Env CoreExpr Demand

We keep track of demands on partial applications.

After calling dmd_anal on the body of a let, which results in demand type `dmd_ty` with demand env `dmd_env`, we do the following for each let-bound variable `f`:

- Iterate through all the keys in
`dmd_env`, finding all applications of`f`to*n*arguments. - For each
*i*from 1 through*n*(where*n*is`f`'s arity), if each of the applications of`f`to*i*arguments has usage demand`OneOrZero`, then it's safe to mark the corresponding lambda-expression as a one-shot lambda.

This might work, but is kind of kludgy.
