ITX - Expand SERIESTOTEXT function with a delimiter

Currently the SERIESTOTEXT function just concatenates the content of an array which doesn't make it useable in my case.

Adding an option for a delimiter like SERIESTOTEXT(Field(s), ",") would make a comma-separated string out of the array which would be a nice shorthand as opposed to making use of F_Maps (and even RunMaps) to achieve this.

How will this idea be used?

I have an input JSON which has a field-array ("field":["a","b"]) which is to be added in a single output-field as a comma-separated string.

The array ranges from none to up to 60 elements, but could potentially go higher which makes hardcoding it not a good solution.

    As a workaround, the desired output can be achieved with the following rule:

    =TRIMRIGHT( SERIESTOTEXT ( Array(s) + "," ), "," )
