seems like you are using "-" as separator between "list" and the 

it would be very nice if this would be compatible with the "standard" 
since there is no way to make an abstraction [list x] which behaves 
fundamentally different from [list y], i would suggest to alias the core 
functions to names without backslashes.
(no matter whether the separator is "." or "-" or anything else _but_ space)

this way we could have a consistant(ly named) set of objects operating 
on lists, no matter whether they are built-ins, external C-objects or 

(what again was the reason to not do it like that in the first place??)
