Sorry for the shameless plug, but all of these things (i.e., lambdas,
left and right sections, even local declarations) do work (and have
been working for a long time) in MCC's interactive interpreter cyi.
Maybe you should consider using MCC instead of PAKCS.

The only thing which you may eventually find annoying is that you have
to declare free variables explicitly even in interactive goals. E.g.,
in PAKCS you could use
   length Xs
whereas in cyi you have to enter either
   let Xs free in length Xs
or
   length Xs where Xs free
