EVAL doesn't need to be cleaned up to get the correct
action here, (although its a good idea). Consider the
(defmacro compiler-choice-now (x y)
`(if (memq compiler-state '(maklap compile)) ,x ,y))
(defmacro foo ()
(compiler-choice-now 'car ''car))
Then ((FOO) '(A B)) has the correct action in the compiler
and the interpreter.
[I would think that this would be obvious.]
So, GLS, if you want to use operator macros GO FOR IT!
