#' @title Apply Functions Over `dust_list` Objects
#' 
#' @description The \code{sprinkle} methods work with \code{dust_list} 
#'   objects very naturally, but medleys pose a slightly more difficult problem.
#'   Medleys are intended to be predefined collections of sprinkles that reduce
#'   the time required to format a table with a particular look and style.  
#'   It seems counter-productive to expect a user to define each of her or his
#'   medleys as a method that can work with both \code{dust} and \code{dust_list}
#'   objects.  \code{pixieply} is a wrapper to \code{lapply} that preserves the
#'   \code{dust_list} class of the object.
#'   
#'   \code{pixiemap} provides functionality to apply differing sprinkles over
#'   each element of a \code{dust_list}.  The most common example is probably
#'   adding a unique caption to each table.
#'  
#' @param X An object of class \code{dust_list}.
#' @param FUN A function to apply to each element of \code{X}
#' @param ... Additional arguments to pass to \code{FUN}
#' @param MoreArgs a list of other arguments to FUN
#' @param SIMPLIFY logical or character string; attempt to reduce the result 
#'   to a vector, matrix or higher dimensional array; see the \code{simplify} 
#'   argument of \code{\link{sapply}}
#' @param USE.NAMES logical; use names if the first ... argument has names, 
#'   or if it is a character vector, use that character vector as the names.
