This is part of the [list]-abs collection under the name
[list-splat]. It works exactly like [list split], but also allows
negative indices for splitting off at the tail.

[list]-abs currently contains about 50 list processing objects, so you
may want to take a look before starting to patch your own versions.

Maybe this is [list-fifo] from [list]-abs?

Just try it: With [tabdump] you can easily create very large lists.
list-map.pd contains an example that uses rather small 64-element
lists, which work fine and reasonably fast.
