  I wasn't able to figure out from the Elisp manual how to turn a list
  of strings into a single string. For example, how does one
  print the following list of strings?

    (setq list-of-strings '("foo" "bar"))
    (message (perform-magic-with list-of-strings))

  While the following works, it seems that there should be a one-liner
  to do this already:

    (defvar my-string)
    (while list-of-strings
      (setq my-string (concat my-string (car list-of-strings)))
      (setq list-of-strings (cdr list-of-strings)))
    (message (my-string))
