degrees of runtime metaprogrammability

"runtime metaprogrammability" describes the ability for a program to create new pieces of code as it is running, ideally of the same class as its initial code.

various computational frameworks have various expectations as to how much of a given program's logic possesses runtime metaprogrammability. frameworks with bad metaprogrammability, when encoding new logic, are forced to embed interpreted sub-languages.
