in haskell-prime list there was a proposal to use '?' for such things:


only problem is what it's hard to define exactly where the lambda
should arise:

(\x -> (1,2,x))

or even at some more outer level. aside of this, it would be very handy
addition to various existing partial application styles:

f a
`f` a
a `f`
