This is invalid Scheme code: the internal defines are converted
into a `letrec' form and in a `letrec', the right-hand-side expressions 
may not refer directly to the bound variables:

  (letrec ((foo ...)
           (bar foo))      ; illegal

  (letrec ((foo ...)
           (bar (lambda ... foo ...)))  ; ok
