Certainly, in real-life code.

I was thinking of examples in textbooks where the reader is trying to
sort out the difference between blocks and procs.  In these examples,
I've seen the variable "block" used -- eg, in "Block, Closures, and Proc
Objects" in "The Ruby Language" in Pickaxe -- and I find it unappealing
to remind myself that "block" is a proc, and "&block" is a block.
