Re: On sequences

    I'm not saying generic sequence operations are a bad idea; there are
    many reasons for having them.  But it's extremely difficult to get
    right, as the Common Lisp design group will attest.

I think it is only hard to get them "right" when you are constrained by
efficiency requirements.  Smalltalk has a very nice "generic" data
structures, including sequences.
