  1. Point of clarification for someone relatively new to React: am I correct to say that it is not necessary to return null with setstate in the way described in this article when the [unchanging] state value(s) are members of a mapped list (where each member in the list has been assigned a unique key)? Or restated, is it the case that a mapped list, where each element in the list is assigned a unique key, only updates those elements where a state change has occurred, and so the technique explained by this article would not be necessary for unchanging elements of a mapped list even when other elements in the list undergo state changes?

    Great article, by the way. Everything makes sense. My question is mostly to make sure I have everything straight when it comes to state updates.
