Compiling anonymous functions embedded in structure

Subject: Compiling anonymous functions embedded in structure
Instead of saying #'(LAMBDA ...) which the compiler doesn't recognize
as something to compile, you could say (DEFUN TEMPNAME ...) then explicitly
copy that codepointer from the function cell of TEMPNAME to the place it's
really wanted. This is a simple way for the esoteric programmer to get around
this deficiency in the compiler.
Yeah, and while we're being esoteric, let's scrap FUNCALL (which should
be called CALL anyway . . .) in favor of the phrase
(setf (get '*MAJIC* 'EXPR) <function>)
(*MAJIC* <arg> <arg> <arg>)
which I think I actually saw in some piece of MacLisp some time ago . . .
