Will do that soon.

Although I find silently truncating to be very useful, I concede that 
it's also nice to have map warn if the args have different length, in 
case you make a mistake.

So all I plan to do is document mapprint, defaulting to false, which it 
already is.  I should probably add a defmvar too....
