    Then again: how many uses of mapcar* have you encountered?
    If you object to `union' because it's not used often, I'd expect you to
    reject the vararg version of mapcar.

The issues are not similar.  One is adding a new function.
The other is a simple, natural extension in an existing function.
The former costs more, in complexity.
