Let's not generalize too hastily.  FWIW, I'm not bothered in the least by 
alist-get (even better: it calls cdr for me!), and I surmise I'm not alone 
"around here" to not find assq more readable than alist-get.

Also: we are all bound by the GNU Kind Communication guidelines on this mailing 
list.  They include these:

This whole thread has managed to violate about half of the guidelines on 
https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/kind-communication.html ; I hope we can do 
better in the future.
