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.
