Treating two different cases differently is never "inconsistent".
This is a software project, not a court of law.

There is a superficial similarity between dash.el and s.el:
they both make a mess in the Emacs namespace.

However, at the level of substance they are not similar.
s.el does not try to add substantive features -- it is
about names only.

By contrast, dash.el has real substance: it is useful.  Some of the
ccnstructs it defines -- the ones I have seen -- are useful and very

I look forward to seeing the rest of the constructs in dash.el, but
based on what I've seen, I expect to see more good features.
