It expands to something like

`(lambda (x y z)
   (let ((tla1 foo)
         (tla2 (current-buffer)))
     (funcall (lambda () (... foo ... tla1 ... tla2)))))

So, we still have the backquoted lambda, but containing only a let and
a funcall, the actual body being byte-compiled.

The translation from our backquote + comma version is roughly

s/`(lambda/(tla--lambda-with-capture/g
s/,.*/(capture \1)/
