You have to change your mind from the "for...loop" paradigm to the
template paradigm, that's not easy at first but when you do all things
came in place...

I finally started realizing this yesterday and was like, "oh...it's kinda supposed to be like a crazy-syntaxed version of Scheme..." and had to throw away everything I was doing. Makes a lot more sense than being like: match "/", do this, do this, do this. When I was doing it that way, I was like "why would anyone use this?" Too much time away from FP.
