| making the implied return statment visible might also be a good idea,
| e.g. 
|    lambda x, y: return x + y
| or even
|    def (x, y): return x + y

Although I don't understand the implications of making such a change, the 2nd alternative above looks very nice. Whenever I write a lambda I feel like I am doing something non-pythonic. I think the 2nd proposal increases the readability of the lambda, something that is often touted as being part of what makes python beautiful.
