If people want (some of) the functionality but don't want to be
anything like compatible with other seqs, I have a count(1) I wrote
long ago which subsumes integer uses of seq (and has a lot more
features besides), but with a completely different interface - my count
makes no effort to be compatible with anything, and until this
discussion arose I wasn't aware seq existed at all. for the curious.
