Perhaps someone could explain why it is lambda
functions don't need to be quoted in this context?
in elisp, the form `(lambda ARGS BODY)' is self-quoting in
all contexts, like numbers and strings. sometimes you see:
(function (lambda ...))
these serve as hints to the byte compiler that the form
should be compiled. on the other hand, if you see:
then that tells the compiler to treat the form as data (DON'T compile).
if you aren't byte compiling, quoting is strictly optional.
