I did look at the source, and saw this was how it worked.

It's not that it's hard to build the list myself, or make a fold predicate.
I figured
that solutions must use special functionality to get the decision points,
and so
it wasn't clear how fast that would be compared with doing the equivalent
myself with standard/public language features.
