> Refactor out sequence-oriented builtins from fns.c to the new sequence.c.
Have you considered whether our code varies enough from GNU that
future synchs of the sequence code won't be impaired by this change
(ie, they would have to be done by hand anyway?)
The two fns.c files are very different at this point; especially, their
exposing of the multibyte implementation to Lisp means the bulk of the code
that deals with strings is not useful to us. Remember also that most of the
functions that deal with sequences currently in our fns.c were moved there
from cl-seq.el, and there’s no prospect of GNU ever having those in C.
