(3) Define a ``top-level form'' as follows:
- Each form read by COMPILE-FILE from the input file is a top-level
- Forms within the body of a top-level PROGN, EVAL-WHEN, or
COMPILER-LET are also top-level forms.
Should we include forms within the body of a top-level MACROLET? This
seems reasonable. What about LOCALLY? This also seems reasonable,
modulo the question of whether LOCALLY is a macro or a special form.
Is this a slippery slope?
