use special syntax for method pointers?

It seems a common confusion for people to do things like

     x = foo.length

when really the method is called length() and today groovy returns a 
method pointer. If we go to support optional parenthesis altogether, 
then this is really gonna be a problem as we'll lose our ability to 
lookup a method pointer.

So maybe we need a syntax for creating a method pointer?

     method = someObject.&doSomething

     // pass this around as a closure
     method(1, 2, 3)

Thoughts?
