comment Why the Scala fascination with flatmap? (This doesn't seem to be the same for mapcat in the Clojure world)
No, I am implying mapcat is a specific particular case of flatMap.

What's to elaborate? mapcat is specifically for collections. It isn't part of a protocol, so can't be made to work on other types. In Scala any monad-like type can define a flatMap method.
