    Methods for working with iterators in ECMAScript

    100% I miss the Rust iterators when using TS/JS. There's Symbol.iterator and Symbol.asyncIterator without any useful capabilities except for just looping through. I'm eagerly watching the iterator helpers proposal which would add the standard iterator methods filter/map/flatMap/etc to JS iterators.
