   They do: most Lisp derivatives and Scheme implementations have
   state-of-the-art module systems that provide many ways to avoid
   name clashes for instance (you probably know the one of Guile).

Huh? Most lisp derivatives and scheme implementations have globally
shared mutable namespaces, there are hacks (as you note) to confie
things a bit, but that usually involves running a new repl, or telling
top-repl to ignore things.  But all in all, it is still a globally
shared mutable namespace.  If it wasn't, it would be a pita to use
