[self-interest] Self Syntax Question

I wonder whether the following describes correct Self syntax or not. I
also wonder whether one would like to use it or not. First, some definitions:
This shall be a method definition
foo = (bar).
This shall be a constant definition, where "bar" is evaluated in the
context of the "lobby" object.
foo = bar.
Obviously, when looking at the message "foo", you cannot distinguish
whether it's a method call or a constant slot access.
My question is, does this work only for unary message selectors or also for
binary and keyword selectors? Or in other words, are these legal expressions?
= whatever = false.
ifTrue: aBlock = nil.
My current SELF implementation requires a method object here, but
especially for blocks etc., constant keyword slots would be handy, I think.
