Since we have this (awfully unneeded and cumbersome) construct in our
language, I have to reluctantly agree with Polar.  As we accepted this
as a data type we need to address it with expressions in a generic way.

But if I remember correctly, when we argued about higher order function,
an explicit argument was given that their usage will not "spread" and be
confined to the collection of standard functions.   I did not buy that,
and now I have a justification why. :)
