As far as I'm concerned, your attempt to unify source-level transformations
under the existing DEFMACRO is the best thing to come out of all this
discussion. No more DEFMUMBLEs where DEFMUMBLE is
I feel that this is more important than the issues of whether macros may
produce declares, or whether declare macroexpands its innards.
The comment above is also a vote against "lambda macros" -- they provide
absolutely no functionality beyond that capable by ordinary macros, and
give only marginally better error checking.

Do I read you right, that what you are suggesting is that
I say (defmacro adbmal (x) `(lambda . (cdr ,x)))
and I could then say
(funcall foo #'(adbmal (y) (+ y 3))
? That's clearly right.
