I don't really like the complicating DWIM stuff in List:map (i.e.

  function List:map (fun,arg1,...)
    local res
    if is_type(arg1,List) then
        res = map2(fun,self,arg1,...)
        res = imap(fun,self,arg1,...)
    return setmetatable(res,List)

e.g. what if someone really wanted to pass a list as arg1 and have it
operated with imap?
