to be honest no, I was just arguing for coherent behavior between
generator expressions and closures, Tim and Phillip J. Eby argued (are
arguing) against late binding.
It is true that successively in an OT-way I mildly proposed
non-late-binding semantics but for _all_ closures wrt to free variables
apart from globals,
but I got that a fraction of people still would like rebinding support
for closer-over vars (something I don't miss personally) , and there are
subtle issues wrt recursive references, which while solvable would make the
semantics rather DWIMish
, not a good thing.
