Can we agree, though, that 'concat' and 'append' are too far from the
"long-a🐍🐍" end of the spectrum?
I hesitate to propose a renaming because there's a lot of history, but
just having a string-concat alias could improve the situation.
Sure I'd agree to that. (though maybe its rather concat-to-string hehehe).
That's quite different from adding a zillion new s- words because clojure,
My position is: work on the manual. Make it prettier, better organized, etc.
Parsimoniously add new names if that really helps.
