That's actually worse than you might think.  Try this:

> def p(): pass
> ftable = { 'a' : lambda: 'a',
>           'd' : lambda: p}

That should be:

           'd': p}

ie No lambda used at all.

I wish Python had real lambdas!

Yep, coz the lambda returns a function object!
Which it should, I just shouldn't have used lambda there.

My bad,

Alan G.
