It's not hard to do in a cheesy way. Implemented with dash.el, entirely
from a sense of mischievousness.

(defmacro fn (&rest args)
  (let ((argsd
          (cl-case it
            ('% 'x)
            (t it))
    `(lambda (x) ,@args)))

Obviously this is not fully functional, but it works for the trivial example.

(funcall (fn %) 10)
(funcall (fn (+ 10 (/ % 2))) 50)

I can't get it to work from first position though. So:

((lambda (x) x) 10)

works, while

((fn %) 10)
