Everybody seems to be in love with the step parameter. Would it be such an improvement over (for instance):

  (reverse (range 10)), or
  (map [* 2 _] (range 5)) ?
Do python guys use it that often?

Yeah I'd much rather compose functions than have extra parameters to remember... but I'm not a Python guy either.

It's pretty inefficient to use reverse, if instead you can add an extra parameter, though I guess it's often negligible.
