Okay, I see. But with the same logic, [list length] could be considered

list-drip.pd, the equivalent abstraction to "list foreach" in the [list]-abs is
the most used abstraction in the whole collection. Although Matju's
implementation is highly optimized, including "list foreach" as an interal
method would speed things up immensely.

Oh, "list cat" would as well.
