I'd like to propose we add '(<expr>) to Python. Pronounced tick-
brackets, it
surrounds an expression which is compiled into an anonymous function.

I have not thought this through apart from knowing that this is one
more
step towards Lisp heaven and submit no code as the implementation
will be trivial ;-)

Of course if my suggestion is not welcomed with open arms then this
is
Pythons last chance to escape terminal decline....
