Re: Is LEXPR-FUNCALL a pain?

Your proposed syntax is not general.  Suppose I wanted to write:
Well, that's the same as (FORMAT X Y CAR FOO), so I would instead have
to do  (LET ((Z (CAR FOO))) (FORMAT X Y . Z)).
In general, we ought to avoid syntaxes that take an evaluated thing
but don't allow all valid expressions.  We learned that lesson
with (STATUS SYNTAX ...).
