Laurentiu's been fairly clear about his/her use case: Named inline
callbacks. I don't think he/she cares whether the functions are arrow
functions, so long as they have names. (Laurentiu, correct me if I'm wrong
there.) Right now, if you want to pass a *named* inline callback to
something, the simplest way is to use the `function` keyword.

(I don't agree with the suggestion, but he/she's been clear about it.)
