Actually "last-x" is not following my naming convetion (yet). Maybe it
should be renamed to "list-lastx"? The same for "take-two".

btw: I named my [list split] [list-splat] instead of [list-split] to
be prepared for such a change.

I agree. Now is the time to do just that. [list] is such a powerful
object, it is getting an important role in all my patches (not just
the [list]-abs) at breakneck speed, so if we wait much longer, I will
need to do a hell of search-and-replacing. And a lot of others will
need to do that, too.
Btw. IOhannes: If you have some ideas for and want to add some
[list]-abs objects yourself, feel free to do so in CVS. And tell me,
so we don't do duplicate work. My [list] frenzy of the last couple of
days will have to come to a temporary halt for now anyways because of
