Re: reduce metaoperator on an empty list
Message ID:
To summarise what I think everyone is saying, []-reducing an empty
list yields either:

1) undef (which may or may not contain an exception), or
2) some unit/identity value that is a trait of the operator,

depending on whether or not people think (2) is actually a good idea.

The usual none(@Larry) disclaimer applies, of course...
