> My #1 EL pet peeve is that there is no way to concatenate a string. This is like serious basic stuff and it is perfectly reasonable to want to perform this task in EL. I realize I could invent my own solution (and I have), but we want to sweep those common cases under the rug like what was done with the magic collection functions (size, isEmpty, etc).
> How about s:concat('one', 'two')?
> I am going to squeeze one more in here. I can't tell you the number of times I have needed to quickly create an iteration loop in the UI over a range of numbers, only to realize that there isn't an easy way aside from creating a component. Can we add an s:range() function that creates a collection on the fly?
> s:range(1, 5)
> This is somewhat of a precedence since the only two functions in s: right now are security related.
