Sure, I've seen anonymous functions used in some valid callback functions.
The only time I've seen lambda used with hooks was to mask a malware
infestation. So it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I'd much rather see straight forward code than clever/tricky code in the
plugins and themes I review.
Then I can be sure I know that both me an the original author know
exactly what the code is really going to do.
