OK, but (AFAIUC) in the above form `function' gets evaluated (so that
the symbol `f' -- the function name -- ends up in the list), and then
Emacs tries to /evaluate/ the form `(gen 42)'.  This probably fooled me
(again).  Do I get it right that you wanted to show how to generate the
argument dynamically and not put a constant in the whole expression?

Best,
