RE: [TF-LIB] COALESCE is an unhelpful choice of name


Firstbound (?x, ?y, ...)

Would have a clear meaning, clearer than coalesce.
Of course SQL is the single near universally  adopted query language in
addition to keyword search, so there are reasons of familiarity.  But from
the name coalesce one cannot easily guess what the function does.
