Here's a related question for more experienced Schemers: In Dybvig, he
states that the define form:

(define square (lambda (x) (* x x)))

is to be preferred to

(define (square x) (* x x))

After reading that, I started using the first form religiously. Now
I'm not so sure. For no small part because the text editor I use
(TextMate) doesn't highlight the first form as a function definition
but does highlight the second form.

The second form.
Shorter is better.
Always, always, always.
