:Nothing. I'm wondering why we chose to name the pages "Each operator" and "Reverse Compose operator". Wouldn't just "Each" and "Reverse Compose" do‽ Maybe it was in anticipation of "Power"… For that case, I suggest "Power (function)" and "Power (operator)" with a redirect from "Power" to the former, and both having a note similar to the one seen on [[Index]].

::That all sounds right, and most consistent with Wikipedia, to me. I'll move this page to "Each". The other common primitives in need of disambiguation are [[Rank (operator)]] and [[Cut (K)]].
