I.e. Blah as a variable is distinct from blah as a function.

I believe that the way this is implemented internally is that blah is
one symbol which has one  cell for the value as a variable and a cell
for the value as a function. But the effect in this case is the same
as if they were separate symbols entirely.

Hi Ian, thank you!

Do you mean
(apply 'blah args) will call the function blah
(apply blah args) will call the function pointer in variable blah?

In a nutshell, yes.
