It's perfectly sensible: it's how you implement partial application (which
as sadly usual is mis-called "currying"). &some-callable.assuming(foo) is a
callable (and a Callable; note however that some-callable is not
necessarily a Callable!) which, when invoked, invokes
some-callable(foo, <*parameters
to invocation here*>).
