No, I was thinking of cases where the func passes
arguments to the thunk when it calls it, so you can
do things like

  def thunk(x):
    do_something_with(x)
  mycollection.foreach(thunk)

Currying isn't needed for that, only some place to
put the formal parameters of the thunk. My proposed
syntax didn't have that, since the thunk didn't have
an explicit header.
