I'm not sure what you mean.  Please elaborate.

What I'm thinking is if `foo` is declared as `foo(alias a)`, then 
`a` could either accept either a symbol (currently possible) or 
an expression (not currently possible; this is what I meant by 
"expressions as rvalues").  Depending on how the body of `foo` 
utilized `a` it could more or less do the equivalent of `foo!(() 
=> a + b)`.
