MAPF is an attempt to solve the generality of mappers problem.
Interlisp makes a different kind of attempt: rather than a function,
it provides a fairly complex special syntax for constructing
iterations.  I think this approach is a serious mistake; however, the
Interlisp facility IS more general than MAPF and should be looked at
by anyone thinking about this problem.  See the section on "Iteration
Statements" in the CLisp chapter of the Interlisp manual, but PLEASE
try to read it for the facilities it provides rather than the way it
provides them.
