Two possibilities come to mind: marking the antecedent
(G (this x) that)
and matching for it
(G (foo (bar ...)) (previous foo))
or possibly a combination
(G (this (foo (bar ...))) (that foo))
...but this hardly seems any better than
(G (setq x (foo (bar ...))) x).
What about a pronoun-word that refers to the position within
the form containing the pronoun:
(G x it-cadr)
(G x g-cadr)
A decent structure editor should be able to keep your references
straight for you.
