Definitely agree. Being able to do `foo.map(::this.bar)` is really great, and even `const extracted = ::foo.bar` is nothing to sneeze at.

I know there's a thread on the issue tracker where a few vocal voices are complaining that they want partial application syntax and bikeshedding on various operator forms related to that, but I don't think that should discourage the excellent benefits that you're giving to everyone but those few.
