Re: issue DYNAMIC-EXTENT-FUNCTION, version 1

I don't want to downplay your concerns, but it ought to be pointed out
that all of the problems you mention also apply to the DYNAMIC-EXTENT
declaration proposal that we have already accepted.  (The only
difference between the two is that DYNAMIC-EXTENT declarations apply
to variable bindings and DYNAMIC-EXTENT-FUNCTION declarations apply to
function bindings.)  Maybe I'm extrapolating beyond what was actually
stated in issue DECLARATION-SCOPE, but there's no confusion in my mind
about the scope of these two particular declarations, or what it means
for them to appear "free".
