I actually prefer foo::closure over foo::fn though either would be fine with me, especially if it means getting the feature vs. not getting the feature. The reason I proposed ::fn was because I trying to suggest something that I though Larry Garfield would appreciate given his recent comment[1] in response to you where he said: "Analysis: I stand by my earlier statement that ::function is just too damned long for this funtionality. Not when already reserved shorter options exist. ::fn" -Mike [1] https://externals.io/message/108459#108542
