I wouldn't think there would be, given that filter() in general is
specified to filter the whole sequence.

I would in no way _object_ to a first-available() that's guaranteed to
stop as soon as it gets a true() result from $function.  And there's
obviously a point past which one doesn't want to keep chaining
"otherwise".  Frequency of the use-case might still be questionable.
