Maybe we need a shorter name for lambda, so people won't
be afraid to type it?
I have experimented with two solutions: defining the lambda character
to be a lisp magic read character that turns into 'lambda; and defining it
to be a zwei command that inserts #'(lambda ()) at point and puts
point inside the null arglist. Both have made me more willing to use
lambda expressions, though they have quite different feels.
