Perhaps not - but at the same time, when discussing new language
features, let's not just limit ourselves to what other languages have
Forget subroutines for a moment - the main point of the thread was the

automatically - that instead of arguing over first-use vs.
function-definition, we let the user decide. I'm sure that my specific
proposal isn't the only way that this could be done.
