    Is (TRUE exp) a legitimate alternative to (BLOCK exp T)?
    Or is it intended that a compiler might optimize away the
    evaluation of the exp.

The manual says TRUE ignores its arguments, but since it is not a
special form, it must evaluate them anyway.  An optimizing compiler
must presumably do likewise unless it is quite certain that there are
no side-effects.
