Ok, this I agree.

Again, if you read my earlier post on the plan to unify these,
this is actually my intention:


Oh my, there's a lot of discussion I can't find that snippet
of information. Anyway, it has something to do about using
the "let" semantics be applied to "lambda" only on the
top level. I think it will work with the lambda syntax and
behavior you sought for.
