Securing a future for anonymous functions in Python

GvR has commented that he want to get rid of the lambda keyword for Python 3.0. 
Getting rid of lambda seems like a worthy goal, but I'd prefer to see it dropped 
in favour of a different syntax, rather than completely losing the ability to 
have anonymous functions.

Anyway, I'm looking for feedback on a def-based syntax that came up in a recent 
c.l.p discussion:

Cheers,
Nick.
