The fact that the macro does partial application and not proper currying
has indeed spawned a discussion about the name. Please refer to the
previous thread initiated by Stephan Houben.
In my reply to Stephan I propose the name
instead of 'curry'. As always with these kind of choices, a great deal
of it is simply a matter of taste and personal (programming) background.
As I have little experience with ML, my preference is 'partial-apply' as
it also refers to the 'apply' function of Scheme.
Would 'partial-apply' be fine with you?
