... assuming also they use primitives which Jade supplies.  For
instance originally there wasn't a way to implement most of the
node-list stuff because you didn't have `node-list' (even if you could
hack `empty-node-list').  Now Jade has the constructors, but you'll
have to implement `node-list-reduce' to be able to copy various of the
functions in the standard; I think there's a list-based `reduce' given
whose modification is trivial.  [There's presumably an assumption that
a reduce operation will be primitive because most interesting list
functions can be done with it.]
