 Description   

The partial function should accept just a function. This allows it to be properly used with apply.

E.g. This breaks (but shouldn't) if args are nil: (apply partial f args)

Attached patch makes partial just returns f if called with only one argument. Not sure if this will have a performance impact or not; a Clojure/core member would probably be able to better judge if the use cases outweigh any performance hit.

Original patch is trivial, but did not have a test. I added a test as a separate patch file.
