This refers to the version as of January 15th ...

Page 81: Figure 3.8 could be clearer, but not quite sure how.

My real confusion is: update is at this stage giving a pair: Model and Cmd. How does the architecture process an updated Model and nontrivial Cmd, in the general case? Do model changes get batched in sequence until commands die down, etc.

(We don't seem to have a general case at this point in the book. SurpriseMe leaves model unchanged and emits a Random.generate command, while e.g. SelectByIndex changes the model but produces no command. Still, this is a good place for a full explanation.)

Chapter 5 (not yet ready for release) gets into this; I'm curious to see whether it answers this question satisfactorily. smilie
