Now that's a good idea:

has_property(Fun, [E | Rest]) ->
    has_property(Fun, Fun(E), Rest).

has_property(_Fun, Prev, []) ->
    case Prev of
	true -> all;
	false -> none

has_property(Fun, Prev, [E | Rest]) ->
    Curr = Fun(E),
    case Curr of
	Prev -> has_property(Fun, Prev, Rest);
	_ -> some
