Well, slurping and steam rolling are different things. Even slurp() can
return a lazy list, and lazy lists don't mind going into a subroutine's
slurpy array. List flattening doesn't (shouldn't) require immediate

I see no reason to not call it Slurpy. If there is any reason to not
call it that, we also need new names for slurp() and slurpy parameters.
