Outta say something about those new scoping rules that Sussman and IforgetWho
invented 30 or more years ago and created Scheme to use it with, and that
later, when Common Lisp was being decided etc, put it there too.

Too late at night for me to remember the name of the "scheme", but
Perl added it via its (sic) "local" variables.   AH -- dynamic binding,
that's what it's called.  Which Elisp doesn't have, being derived from
MacLisp thinking.

That was a long time ago.  Is what I remember actually a correct memory?
