	What I do is use warn instead of error, and have the macro expand to something
	safe, like nil.

    NIL isn't safe.  Expand into (PROGN) or (VALUES) instead.  If the form
    is in the body of a TAGBODY (or anything with an implicit tag body, such
    as DO or PROG), NIL is treated as a tag, not a form, and if you have
    multiple of them you will get a warning about duplicate tags.

Sorry.  I was unaware that the body of a LET was an implicit tagbody.
