For the first one: yes. Once you have a sequence, you know based on the 
symbolset what type of sequence your are dealing with. Maybe you don't 
even need an additional type ivar. By using tools classes specific for 
sequence types you should be able to avoid the wrong opereation on a 
sequence. I am not sure what you mean by 'return value customization'.
