No, please don't.

Two things: I explained what I think is the semantics of pcase-dolist in
a post I posted ~20 minutes ago in reply to Stefan's opening of this sub
thread.  I can't be sure I've got all the details right, but I believe
I'm not far off.

If we can't get quality doc strings for pcase-dolist and friends, I say
we should remove them from Emacs.  There are only around 30 occurrences
of pcase-dolist.
