Ah, yes, hadn't thought of that.

Unfortunately, I have another issue. The source file is lexically bound,
and the function uses this feature (it returns closures). This breaks
in the autoload file.

I've tried using eval like so:

;;;###autoload
(eval
   (defun fname())
 t)

which solves both problems.

Any better way?

Phil
