Blimey! Talk about rearranging the deckchairs :-)
With respect, do you not think it'd be wiser for the community to 
deal with a total lack of proper type checking, the lack of any 
notion of the general concept of a function, or a whole range of 
other fundamental issues in PHP first before worrying about closures 
and lambda functions?  I'm no language purist but PHP really does 
take the biscuit.
My personal views and not in any way representing the list .
