So can any language, but then they are not lambda macros
at all, just named ones with reserved names.  What I had
in mind was :

\def \eolsection
		\catcode `\^^M = \active
		\uccode `\~ = `\^^M
         	\uppercase {\lambdadef ##1~}{\endgroup \message {##1}}

Taco, can I add this to my wish list ?!
