[Bengt, on lambda :: suite]

Since you probably won't stop until I give you an answer: I'm really
not interested in a syntactic solution that allows multi-line lambdas.
I don't think the complexity (in terms of users needing to learn them)
is worth it. So please stop (as several people have already asked
you). There's some text somewhere in the guidelines for python
developers on when to know when to give up. Read it. :-)
