Good question. The thing is, they are the same as SRFI-1's `every' and
`any', which have a longer heritage; Common Lisp appears to call `any'

I think the SRFI names are clearer[1], so you should use them. We have a
problem that we provide less general implementations[2] under strange

So ideally instead of documenting them, if you're with me, we should
deprecate them, replacing them with their srfi-1 counterparts.

What do you think?


1. `and-map' implies that you can map syntax, which you cannot.
2. `and-map' doesn't handle multiple lists as `map' and `every' do.
3. I think only Chicken has and-map, and calls it `andmap'.
