Hmm, that has appeal.  If you assign a partition to a list of
arrays, 0/false selected go into the first, number goes into
the n'th, with the last also getting numbers that are too big
and strings that are true.  But it could instead be assigned
to pairs, and the partition block selects a key or default
which chooses the target.
