Why is it that EVAL returns the value in the current DYNAMIC
environment, rather than the lexical environment?  Or perhaps the most
recent binding (lexical unless a variable is special)?  Or if this is
necessary for some reason, why isn't there another function, say,
LEXICAL-EVAL that does this?  It seems rather strange to have a mainly
lexically scoped language with no facility for lexical evaluation.
