Cool (looks like sub), except I would not use 'remove' here; maybe
removevalues?? (But then I've already used sub(), maybe slice()?)

I'm already using 'sequences' in an idiosyncratic way in PL to mean
'values returned by an interator'. Anyway, 'Sequence' seems a bit
foreign, so I'm still tending towards List.

How do you feel about seqfilter(), which creates an iterator from
another, filtered through a function?

Any opinion on '+' etc (optional) shortcuts?

Yeah, it's really gaming the exercise ;)

I had a brief IM with Vadim who hopes that the  result remains
'micro'.  "Library golf" is hard.  There's  a saying going around that
naming things is one of the hardest things in Computer Science.
