Hmz, the intention isn't to support multi-line lambdas. It's to make
passing in anonymous functions easier.
For precedence let's take a look at decorators. Fundamentally,
decorators save a user nothing more than a single line of code.
Why do @foo, when you could just do: func = foo(func) ?
But saving developers that extra line of typing has obviously been
useful -- you can find decorators used pretty heavily in many of the
major Python frameworks nowadays...
By easing up some of the hassle, we can encourage certain forms of development.
