Not quite.

The purpose of unlambda is to allow you to pass a lambda expression into a
function that expects an ordinary function object and might use it as a part
of another lambda expression.

template<class F> void g( F f )
    h( bind( f, _2, _1 ) );

int main()
    g( _1 < _2 ); // fail
    g( unlambda( _1 < _2 ) ); // works

A top-level lambda[] that does let()[] will not work for this case.
