Locals, Specials and Binding

Reply to: Mark Nahabedian <naha@YUKON.SCRC.Symbolics.COM>

	It would be a problem if for some reason you declared the uninterned
	symbol to be special.  I can't think of a reason to do this off the top
	of my head.

But still, if you're using the the variable in a LET, the nesting
guarantees that you will not cross bindings because the values
get shadowed.  

The real screw case with macro-generated variable generation is accidental
reference to the variable (whether special or local) by a code body.  With
this avoided, chances are, you're not going to have a problem, unless
you're doing something you really don't want to be doing anyway.

Can someone come up with a concrete example to refute this?
