in reply to recursive anonymous subroutines

Why make life more difficult for yourself when you don't have to? You could theoretically do this without using a sub at all - any recursive function can be rewritten linearly using a stack - but I don't see you looking into that option, probably because it would be add complexity. You should follow the same reasoning when choosing whether or not to implement anonymous subs.
