Oh! And rereading the thread, I see that Dmitri had mentioned that as well… I must not have seen that message, because he raises some good points that I hadn’t considered. Anyway, sorry, I didn’t mean rehash something that’d already been decided.

I’m still in favor of adding ‘forEach’ over ‘ifPresent’, though… the meaning is as clear (at least to me), and it’s one less function name to remember.
