There is no such thing and there will not be one, because it would break 
the data model behind RDF. If you want something like that, you have to 
use Seq.

Internal to your application, you can do whatever you like. There this 
sort of thing can be made efficient enough.

Don't. Just take the penalty of doing it right. It won't kill you, and 
it'll pay off in the broader tool support.
