Also, if you're testing stuff and you add a lambda
form to a hook, and later you want to remove it,
you need to use exactly the same text - same
whitespace, everything.  The lambda form is taken,
in effect, as text, and it looks for an exact
textual match.

It's very good to get in the habit of not using
lambdas on hooks.
