Good point. snip.
I'm not sure what the NL equivalents of function invocation vs.
function reference are, but somehow I don't think there would be a lot
of confusion (not that there couldn't be).
Here is a bad example.
Think about computing that answer.
Compute the answer, and think about the result.
thinkabout( func )
thinkabout( func() )
Oddly enough, the NL equivalents aren't even close to resembling each
