Yes, this was my first attempt, too.  But I got puzzled whether
or not the extra quote matters in any way, especiall with lambda
expressions.  Since I couldn't find a satisfactory answer in the
Elisp reference manual, I decided to get rid of it just to be save.

So, If you tell me that the quote does no harm no matter what Lisp
object is quoted, I can live without a self-evaluating-p function.
