Will this make Jean-Philippe's work obsolete?


Being (currently) no enthusiast anyway, I would not even know which 
classes to choose now, since Edison has been improved.

I prefer alphanumeric identifiers.

"Combine all the elements in the associative collection, given a 
combining function and an initial value. The elements are processed in 
an unspecified order. Note that fold ignores the keys."

This fold function looks pretty unsafe to me, because (the common) "fold 
(:) []" might reveal implementation details that one wants to hide. Such 
a function should be called "structuralFold" (or something like that).
