I like it, but it would require a new keyword. Alternatively, one
could abuse 'def':


but then people would likely be confused as Skip was, earlier in this thread,
so I guess 'def' is a not an option.

IMHO a new keyword could be justified for such a powerful feature,
but only Guido's opinion counts on this matters ;)

Anyway I expected people to criticize the proposal as too powerful and
dangerously close to Lisp macros.
