[Python-ideas] Backtick expression: similar to a shorter lambda syntax

The problem with using the back-tick is that it is far too easy to miss read it for a single-quote.
back-tick in bash has the $( xxx ) replacement that avoids the problem.

Please find an alternative syntax that avoid the problem.
