That one does not work, it'll try to call the binary `add` with each item of the array when the map iterator is reified, erroring out.
functools.reduce(operator.add, array, '')
would work though, it's an other way to spell `sum` without the string prohibition.
Oops, you are right of course, I was thinking reduce but it came out map. Thanks for the correction.
