Well, the point of the exercise is to use "statement syntax",
just as you did using Locals. By doing so, you lessen the chance
of having "outrageous error messages" and minimize compile time.

There are advantages with phoenix functions over plain function
objects, but I do not want to digress. At the very least, you
have easy binding of locals. Also, it's just as succinct and
clear as your Locals version.
