Thanks, but I'd strongly prefer not to baking this syntax into the elisp
reader. IME, we tend not to use anonymous lambas enough to matter.
Clojure is idiomatically pure-functional; we're not.

I'd be more receptive to a generalized, CL-style reader-macro facility.
You could then use that to implement this syntax, but locally.
