Actions as expressions

Normally, actions and stamps require an action: an assignment, or an if(), each(), or var() statement.

However, actions may be expressions, which are evaluated for their side-effects. For example, "frogs".speak() is technically an expression, not an action, but if the action is run, the macOS will say the word "frogs".
