comment on lambda macros

 LAMBDA macros in zetalisp were borrowed from Interlisp to make it
possible to extend lambda-expression syntax to accomodate Interlisp
semantics.  In general, LAMBDA macros allow an arbitrary translation
step before application of a function. Very useful for embedded languages.
There is no hair, just a few simple taps before errors are declared.
