The deadline for discussion has passed. There were no explicit votes for 
or against, but 4 reactions that count as positive, and 1 as unconvinced.

The only issue seems to be the names:

I have made a case for /lookup(Less|Greater)(Equal)?/, based on the fact 
that lookup* functions return "Maybe x" values, while find* functions 
return values without a maybe wrapper. But I don't really care that 
much. Flipping a coin between "find" and "lookup" will also work for me :)
