Hi there,

have any of you guys discussed about adding the possibility to use php
anonymous functions [1] with the hooks?

I mean something like:

add_filter('the_title', function($title) { return '<b>'. $title. '</b>'; });

instead of declaring a function and passing its name as a paramenter to
add_filter and add_action.

What you think about it?
