You can embed MPL lambda expressions inside other ones. I couldn't find
a way of accessing the arguments of the outer lambda expression from the
inner one, because the names _1, _2, etc were referring to the arguments
of the inner expression, not the outer one (they were shadowing the
outer ones).

I'd express it with "\x.\x.x" in lambda calculus. Inside the inner
lambda abstraction "x" refers to the argument of the inner, not the
outer one.
