Joking aside, I've used scripting languages a lot in the past, and they 
all have some form of string join that, yes, more or less behaves like 
the one Perl provides:

I have: ["Foo", "Bar", "Baz"]

I want: "Foo Bar Baz"

(I might also want to join them with something besides a blank space).

Yes, it has been duly pointed out several times to me in private that I 
neglected to state clearly what I wanted:-)

It's a handy feature to have when working with strings.
