Attached is a patch that makes it so.  Only "ensure" has been removed
instead of moved to chicken.type (which was the wrong place for it
anyway; chicken.base would've been more suitable).  We don't use it
anywhere in core and I don't think it's used much by eggs either.

After this patch is accepted and applied, we can move these macros
into the miscmacros egg (or maybe let eval-when fall by the wayside
because it's a weird CL concept that doesn't fit the Scheme model
very well, and can be replaced by cond-expand anyway)
