We have the "fun <name>/<arity>" notation, which I believe
has been extended or will be extended to "fun <module>:<name>/<arity>".
It would seem like a minor change to the language to allow
variables here.

It must be said, this looks like a case for the
old-fashioned {M,F} or {M,F,A} tuples-naming-functions.
