The Perl Renaissance
I should rest all this rip, but I can't help it: reference to multi-line lambdas in languages with Python-like syntax:
(yep, you're right, having multiple closures on a single line with offsite-rule syntax is "non-trivial" and no one solved this yet, but even one per line would be enough to make map and fold bearable, and ftr, I want to punch Guido or whoever else has a saying in language's design for not "stealing" this and adopting it into Python - I think there was a PEP along the lines that got killed and burried, can't find it now).

Please relax... no tool is perfect for all situations. It is always a trade off.
