I'm not sure about a lisp or a scheme, but
as to the question of local variable bindings ---

I have seen an addition to smalltalk workspaces, that
allowed for the creation and the persistent existence of variables
that were local to the workspace. When the workspace is remove the
variables go away. I'm not sure how close that is to what
you are talking about but this was implemented using a dictionary
in the workspace to keep track of local variables.
