FWIW, if you open the old file in a new DrScheme, the old lambdas are
converted to the new lambdas.

For the emacsophiles (that occasionally use DrScheme) in the audience,
this means that putting a lambda into your source file does not disrupt
emacs ability to edit the file. (Well, the lambda itself my look funny,
but you'll have to take that up on another mailing list. The file is
utf-8 encoded so it can be made to work, I assume.)
