This would be a minimal, but worthwhile inclusion to the stdlib that will benefit a large number of developers.
Yes, I've wanted this addition for a while since this is a frequent enough operation and the lack of it has been rather annoying. (I tend to go with the
.reduce route in my own code to avoid creating the intermediate array)
This kind of additive change matches other similar types of proposals.
Read through the proposal and kept up with the associated pitch. The API is clean and easy/intuitive to find. This inclusion will definitely simplify some of my own projects.
