Through does do that. When I saw Bob's response to the original post I asked myself "How did I miss that?" I thought I had tried it and found that it didn't work. The only explanation I can think of is that I had the "reverse map" metaphor fixed too firmly in my mind, to the point that I used Maplike syntax [{f1,f2},x] instead of [{f1,f2}@x].
