One big question is: what's wrong with filter, map and lambda?
They can make a lot of code a lot simpler, specially for people
who have a background in functional programming.
IIRC there is nothing wrong with them - only that all builtins
were disabled and some specific few were re-enabled, and then
those three were overlooked.
Count one vote for getting them back (_.lambda, _.filter, _.map
is fine enough, of course).
