re: What you are talking about is handled by the DYNAMIC-EXTENT declaration.
Not all of it! I was talking about both things; see previous reply to
moon too. The only point I had hoped to make by throwing in the reference
to stack allocation was that the drive for lexical scoping came from the
*potential* for performance rather than from a sense of language purity.
Oddly enough, lexical scoping for generic functions (and probably for
classes too) seeems to be going in the wrong direction for performance.
