Partiality is an Effect

The delay monad is the free completely iterative monad over the identity functor.

In a good mathematical sense, the delay monad is the universal one among the monads suitable
for capturing iteration.

Delay types are domains [from denotational semantics].

For any monad, there is a monad supporting looping.
