[OpenSCAD] Functions literals / higher order functions

Yes! Just try it out. 

  function foo(a, f) = f(a); 
  echo(foo(30, sin)); 

gives obviously a syntax error: "Ignoring unknown variable 'sin' ... "
while the following code does what you intended. 

  echo(foo(30, function(x) sin(x))); 

Trying to redefine sin() by 

    sin = function(x) sin(x); 

in order to call 

    echo(foo(30, sin)); 

will detect a recursion. While the following typo will indeed brick OpenSCAD

    sin = function(x) sin();
