I can hardly consider this a feature. It may be convenient to have this
capability somewhere but its behavior is too unexpected for it to be
on vanilla flavored Compile Defun or Eval Defun. I expect you will get
bug messages about this from confused users until it is changed.
What would you suggest to replace this behavior. I think it is consistent
and easy to use. I admit documentation would help, but I don't think its
behavior should be changed.
