New improved CASE macro

Well, Martin's jumping on me for my variable naming style made me sit down and
do it *right*, i.e. with no variable conflicts possible at all. Below, the
new improved code. You cannot tromp on the runtime variables of this solution.
Aren't lexically scoped lisps fun?
(herald case)
;; CASE with specifiable PREDicate to compare the cases with.
;; Original CASE is equivalent to: (CASE eq? key . clauses)  [now called CASEQ].
;; Ashwin Ram, May 1985.
;; Rewritten by Olin Shivers (shivers@a.cs.cmu.edu) 2/26/86
;;     CASE now evaluates the KEY and PRED forms exactly once, in the
;;     environment that the CASE statement appears in.
