It would be a problem if for some reason you declared the uninterned
symbol to be special. I can't think of a reason to do this off the top
of my head.
But still, if you're using the the variable in a LET, the nesting
guarantees that you will not cross bindings because the values
The real screw case with macro-generated variable generation is accidental
reference to the variable (whether special or local) by a code body. With
this avoided, chances are, you're not going to have a problem, unless
you're doing something you really don't want to be doing anyway.
Can someone come up with a concrete example to refute this?
