  Target Milestone: ---

I do know that we are past the point of adding new functions because they are a
good idea, but in writing an application to make use of arrays recently, I
found the absence of array:put() really painful. That is:

array:put($array, $index, $value)

which returns

$array => array:remove($index) => array:insert-before($index, $value)

that is, it replaces the value at position $index with a new value.

This seems such a basic omission that I wonder if we should consider it even at
this late stage.
