Depends on your interpretation of what a closure is.  One interpretation is
that with closures you can, for example, have a series of lambda
expressions, evaluate up to a certain point, add a marker, store it, and
then continue where you left off at a later date.

As per our conversation in IM, this would certainly be one way to move
towards a stackless and thread-free Python diet. ;-)

Also, since we're on the subject, one *true test* of Python language
interoperability would be to get Kamaelia ( http://kamaelia.org ) to work
properly via IronPython.
Kamaelia list (Cc'd): Has anyone attempted to get Kamaelia working with
IronPython?  If I am understanding things correctly, until support for
generators are implemented then this would not be possible.  Is this
understanding correct?

To the IronPython team: Having the ability to run Kamaelia (a brainchild of
Michael Sparks of BBC Research) via IronPython would be an absolute dream
come true.  *AMAZING* potential existing bridging together Kamaelia and
.NET, in my own opinion.
