2019-08-31: I actually like BOTH the new `each`-return-value AND simplifying `reduce`. Reduce should NOT skip values. Reduce should invoke once per source value. The reduced-value is undefined unless inject is specified.

I think I like the idea of the alternate way to specify inject is to use defaults. However, logically for other comprehensions, should be applied every loop:

reduce sum = 0, value from container with sum + value

Honestly, I'm ok with that inconsistency! Reduce's first parameter is special anyway. So what if it only initializes once while value and key would initialize every time? Actually, only value makes sense to have defaults. Key is always a string.

The interpolation fails to parse, which then means it becomes part of the string!
