I agree its solution to parallelism via a simple forking map/reduce is  
not universal, but in fact I am wondering about having other  
functional combinators available in shorthand.  Prelude.ml is a
superb crash course in FP, and in fact I catch myself reinventing  
these idioms ad hoc quite often.  I'm very tempted to just include it  
always, making it my own Pervasives.

Cheers,
