Re: Improving LISP "grossly"

I assume you were sort of joking with the suggestion.
But it sounds like you haven't heard of compilation.
The arguments to a function in compiled lisp code are simply
pushed onto a stack as they are computed. Far more efficient
than the LAMBDA-BINDING (actually SPEC-BINDING), you mention,
and also more efficient than using global variables.
