It's generally good API design practice to have shortcuts for commonly
 needed things, otherwise you end up with clunky, verbose APIs that 
are a pain to use for anything. I will not discuss whether what you're
 proposing is a good idea or not here, partly because I haven't 
thought about it much. However, even if it is, using `map()` to 
specify the min of two values results in extremely weird and 
convoluted code. Power is good, as long as it stays out of your way 
when you don't need it.
