Ok, I must have misread. I thought you wrote "All of: - code block - 
module block* - lambda block** could be use cases of one type of block". 
I don't see how that is possible given what I wrote in reply.

Both syntax (|| is required for a block-lambda empty parameter list) and 
semantically (delayed evaluationg until invocation; completion reform 
also), block-lambdas and blocks are not "one type of block".
