I see you want to push the example to its limit a bit. ^_^ Well, I assume this hypothetical language would be stocked with utilities that made up for what its pureness missed out on. How believable are these?

  (def zipdate (func subject . indices)
    (iflet (first . rest) indices
      (copdate subject first [apply zipdate func _ rest])
      func.subject))
  
  (def zet (subject . args)
    (apply zipdate [do t] subject args))
  
  (zap zet the-piles n 0 1)
