    Is there a way to get a call to a LEXPR to compile
    as a call to an EXPR? .  .  .
A typical thing to do, as was done with the systemic functions
EVAL and PRINT, is to introduce new names (in these cases *EVAL
and *PRINT) which are subr's of a specific number of arguments,
and then they set up the lsubr call;  indeed it does save space
in the compiled code, and there is no UUO overhead at all.
If you can't pick a "common case" w.r.t. number of args, you might
have two or three such new names, and have something like a
SOURCE-TRANS to expand into the appropriate one.
