That’s just what the doctor ordered :)

I’ve only skimmed the manual so far, but see it doesn’t address one of my questions: whether and when to favor functions such as first/rest/empty?, etc., over the Lisp-y car/cdr/null?, etc. I have noticed that some of these functions are list-specific and perhaps they’re to be preferred when working specifically with lists?
