i think you ought recommend them to *always* use list comprehensions (for
map-like operations), lists:foreach/2 (for side-effects only) or lists:foldl/3
(for folds). if the customers/testers complain about speed, profile and rewrite.
in my experience, optimizing without profiling is typically sub-optimal.
