A couple of replies in-line.

Whose version? :)
I think Morten was the last person to significantly re-write l3seq -- nothing to do with me!

I'm not so fussed about the edge cases with mismatched conditionals, but the {{{{{{a}}}}}} problem is more serious. I'll look into it. I haven't seen that catcode trick for comparing emptiness -- is it any better than \tl_if_empty ?

That's true; I guess the difference is negligible.

Surely the break has to come at the end so that any \seq_map_break:n puts its argument after all the cleanup?
(I only just fixed this up in the repository; \seq_map_break:n has been broken in this regard, I think, ever since I first added it. (I.e., not Morten's fault!))

This reminds me that after I implemented the break using a gobbling-up-until marker, I realised it would have been more in the spirit of the seq code to just define

    \cs_set:Npn \seq_elt:w #1 \seq_elt_end: {}

and if you need to execute some code at the end to end the mapping with


that was normally \prg_do_nothing: but could be redefined as necessary. Never got around to trying out the different versions; the above would be nice and simple.
