Having !strconcat also work on code, and return something which isn't a string, seems unfortunate. And we also have !listconcat. If we want to unify things, I think it would make sense to add !concat (which works on all of those things). [If you do this, then also support !strconcat and !listconcat as aliases to be nice to out-of-tree backends].
Oh right, thanks, implementing !concat plus the aliases for the old functions seems to be the cleanest solution, assuming that this change won't cause too much confusion in existing code. I think it should be fine but I don't know how many people are using these operators.
