I could not find a place where to register my desire for map:map in
xquery/xpath so I entered here ... apologies if this is a dupe, etc.

I have been using Saxon and MarkLogic implementation of map:map for the past
few months and am convinced of its usefulness.

some adhoc usage scenarios;

controller: keeping routing in memory makes things zippy, and a very common map
for me nowadays is one where the keys are uri's and values whatever I need
(think url rewriting) or even functions to be passed ala HOX (higher order

memoize: maps makes it easy to provide inline func caching ala


working with json: maps make life a bit easier in this respect

there are more ....
