[S29] uniq

Hi,

three quick questions:

Is it intentional that there's no uniq in the current S29[1] draft?
See [2] for Damian saying that uniq is probably in.

I wondered what uniq's default comparator should be, =:=?

Should it be possible to give an own comparator block, similar as with
grep? E.g.
  uniq <a b a a c d>;   # <a b a c d>

  uniq:{ abs $^a == abs $^b } 42, 23, -23, 23, 42
                        # 42, 23, 42
