[ferret_users] concatenating strings with integers

Dear Ferret users,

I'd like to concatenate an array of strings and an array of integers
(that should be converted to strings).  Now I have:

let First = { "one", "two", "three" }
let Second= { 1, 2, 3 }
let Third = First + Second

That doesn't work, since the elements of Second must be converted to
strings, e.g.:

let Third = First + FloatStr(Second, "(f0.0)")
yes? list Third
             VARIABLE : FIRST + FLOATSTR(SECOND, "(f0.0)")
             SUBSET   : 3 points (X)
 1   / 1:"one1."  
 2   / 2:"two2."  
 3   / 3:"three3."

Not quite.  I do not want the colon.  Of course, I shouldn't have used
FloatStr().  I rather need a string to *integer* function, but I think
that Ferret does not have that.

Of course I could do anything by spawning awk(1), but a native Ferret
solution would be more neat.

I guess this is a feature request: and IntStr() function.
