Re: and-map and or-map not documented in the manual

From a user's perspective, reading code containing these functions, it can
be confusing that they're undocumented and not defined in the user portion of the code. Either deprecating them or documenting them with the caveats mentioned would be better than the status quo.

I would prefer to document them, because it's less work, and because the pointer into srfi-1 would help new users find other tools they might need.
Can I be helpful in making that happen?

deprecate them, replacing them with their srfi-1 counterparts.

I'm with you, but I think the status quo is safer, so that code from the
late 90's can run forever with Guile (hmm, how convincing is that?).
