This would be an immutable, array access zval buffer which would serve as the groups in operations such as groupBy. Instead of a Map<mixed, Sequence> it would be Map<mixed, Tuple>. It would be very easy to convert those tuples into sequences if you need the extra mutability and functionality.

$map->groupBy('key')->apply('sequence'); // assuming sequence is a function

$map->groupBy('key')->apply(function($key, $value) {
    return new Sequence($value);
});

API I'm thinking of is basically:

  • __construct(iterable|array)
  • get(int)
  • toArray()
  • count()
  • clear() ??
  • isEmpty() ??

Have decided that this is a good idea. Will replace Pair and Vector, Deque becomes Sequence.
