Get rid of call function

Hi All,

I don't know if this has been discussed before, I tried to dig into
the mail archive but didn't found any hit.

I love the function like macro's (variables) :) and I was wondering if
we could think about an enhancement were we could avoid the 'call'
name in the call sequence.

I got the impression (not internal knowledgeable so may be wrong) that
in $(foo x,y,z) 'foo x' is not a possible variable name, in contrast
with $(foo,x,y,z) where foo,x,y,z is a valid variable name.

So I was thinking that $(foo x,y,z) could be internally expanded as
$(call foo,x,y,z).

Dunno if this logical would break other valid construction, if so we
could add one more heuristic where we could do this internal expansion
only if the foo definition does have some $num meanig we expact call
on it.

This is not crucial, just that I am a lazy typer and I know when a
variable is to e used as a function like.
