Could someone provide some context here?  (I don't quite know where
the suggestion originated.  I can't find any previous mention in the
archives.)  In particular, why these two, and not any other set of
procedures from SRFI 1 (`any' and `every')?  And why these names and
not the names from SRFI 1?  `ormap' and `andmap' seem kind of strange,
as they are folds, not maps.  Also, as compound names, the
componenents should be separated with hypens.
