I *think* you are trying to find a syntax for "code blocks" like Ruby
has, but I'm not sure. Your examples are a little confusing to me
(possibly because you have at least three separate suggestions here,
"as" blocks, a mysterious "do" keyword I don't understand, and partial
application using % as argument placeholder).
Many people have tried to find a syntax for code block expressions, none
have succeeded. Please note that being an *expression* is critical. We
already have syntax for code block statements, it is the "def" keyword.
You probably ought to spend a few days searching the mailing list
archives for previous discussions before you get your hopes up.

end of your post:
