I’ve just got hold of The Fall Peel Sessions. Surely we can figure out what a container driver is…

I have always had an image of someone driving a vehicle (cursor) through
a data structure (container), following a sequence/stream of directions
A reasonable notion of cursor is a one-hole context (amputree) paired
with the thing there (the amputated tree). Well, actually that’s the
*state* of a cursor; the thing itself eats directions (or Yorkie bars?),
and changes state.
Hm. Not quite there yet. In OS parlance, a driver presents a standardised
interface to some low level gadget. It is, roughly speaking, a simulation.
