It would be nice to have a better way to reference function attributes from within a function. (This would also help write recursive functions that could be safely renamed, but I'm not sure many people would necessarily think that's a good thing ;-))
Now, yes, being able to reference a function from inside itself is a feature I had missed over the years.
