I think it's a perfectly sane thing to want. In Common Lisp, for example, there are functions analogous to Perl's map that accumulate a return list (e.g. mapcar, and others that don't (e.g. mapc), plus the all-encompassing Lisp map that allows one to specify what kind of sequence one wants returned (e.g. list, vector, string) or none at all. It's nice to have all that available when you don't want to write an explicit loop.

[Corion]: Just a quick poll - is anybody actively relying on https://perlmonks. pairsite.com/? I plan to retire that URL in favour of moving all our servers onto the same HTTPS certificate for perlmonks.{com, net,org}
[Corion]: Actually bsd_glob '{www.,}perlmonks .{com,net,org}', plus css.perlmonks.org I think
[Corion]: Sad that Let's Encrypt does not allow wildcard certificates, but they could be somewhat of a hassle to verify
