[Python-ideas] And now for something completely different

I fail to see any advantage to introducing new syntax and semantics that are
likely to confuse people when the capability to do this is already there in
a simple and easy to use way. As I said earlier, mark it at the calling site
with "lambda:" and at the point where it should be evaluated with "()". And
no reasons have been offered for why this should is *so important* that it
should be promoted beyond what's already there. Start from the problem, not
from the "solution."
I don't want to see python become rattlesnake -- where you have to watch
carefully every place you step.
