	...  This demonstrates that LEXICAL-EVAL would have to be a new
	special form, rather than simply a function.
    This same issue seems to come up over and over. Will someone tell
    me what is wrong with the following argument:...

I'm not quite sure what your proposed source transformation was supposed to
demonstrate.  How do you compile

  (defun bind-x-then-call-f (x f)
    (funcall f `(cons x x)))

given that anyone can do

  (bind-x-then-call-f 'foo #'lexical-eval)?
