Yea, this is a loss

    (defvar foo)
     ==>	. . .   (or (boundp 'foo) (setq foo nil)) . . .
    Why does defvar seem to think that it has to bind foo to something in
    this case?  This is a screw if you just want to do (defvar foo) in one
    file, and (defvar foo 'initial-value) in another.  .  .  .
Fixed in MLMAC  74.
