Wow, thanks for your great reply Steven ! It really helps me get a
better understanding of what I'm trying to do and move forward in my
research !

Some values are not going to be nice as strings, so I think I'm more
going to try to make a convenience shortcut for str map join, for when
I want to generate a human readable string. Ie.: mapjoin(*args,
sep='\n', key=str). Then I could replace:

readable = '\n'.join(map(str, [


def foo():
    readable = textwrap.dedent(f'''


readable = mapjoin(
    # map=format_record could be used

That removes the "fuzzy" feeling I get from my previous proposals.

So, after a while if people are using that mapjoin that we could have
on PyPi, we could perhaps consider it to improve str.join. Or, do you
think adding such features to str.join is still discussable ?
