I'm gearing up to work on the primer, and I agree some discussion of  
equivalent forms would be helpful. Not necessarily a list, but at  
least some insight into equivalence and when one might use one form  
over another.

I'll also point out that some of this occurs in the strucspec:

I agree, as well, that an exhaustive list isn't a goal. Interesting  
equivalences is more to the point.

Cheers,
Bijan.
