Feature #7907: Give meaning to staby word
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7907#change-36796

Author: trans (Thomas Sawyer)
Status: Rejected
Priority: Normal
Assignee: matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto)
Category: core
Target version: Next Major


=begin
I noticed that `->word` doesn't mean anything. i.e.

  >> ->foo
  SyntaxError: (irb):4: syntax error, unexpected '\n', expecting keyword_do_LAMBDA or tLAMBEG
      from /opt/Ruby/1.9.3-p327/bin/irb:12:in `<main>'

If that is always so, then could it be given a meaning as a shorthand for method()? i.e.

  ->foo

would be the same as writing

  method(:foo).to_proc

=end
