Sorry, misread.

Once a `Method` as the result of `&` to passing a block is allowed, optimization of calling a `Method` object might be possible by adding a new block handler type for methods.
No "extra ruby objects" would be the next step.

Feature #13581: Syntax sugar for method reference

Some another programming languages (even Java, in version 8) has a cool way to refer a method as a reference.

I wrote some examples here: https://gist.github.com/americodls/20981b2864d166eee8d231904303f24b

I miss this thing in ruby.

I would thinking if is possible some like this:

~~~
roots = [1, 4, 9].map &Math.method(:sqrt)
~~~

Could be like this:

~~~
roots = [1, 4, 9].map Math->method
~~~

What do you guys thinking about it?
