I think these are too marginal needs to support directly.  When there is
need for converting between different alist types, a simple map will do.

If we take the path of generality, why not support plists too, so that
we need to parameterise with "function for getting/making next cell".  I
don't think this kind of generality will pay off.  I'd rather define
these routines to account for the most common situation(s) and be done
with it.
