	[by the way, people, one of the claimed advantages
	of dynamic scoping was that debugging is easier because
	you can just type the name of a variable and see the
	value when in a debugger -- whereas for lexical scoping
	you need a more complicated thing that can grovel over
	the environment.  But in the current scheme of things
	I find myself typing A and L a lot and groveling arond
	trying to find things.

The variables that cause the trouble are not dynamically scoped.  The
problem exists because the system is NOT purely dynamic.

	Before I end this flame, I'd like
	to put in a good word for the DEFAULT being for the
	compiler to include all debugging information, including
	names of locals and the kitchen sink, in all FEF's,
	for debugging purposes.

It is.
