Yes, currently only a few files have been converted to lexical binding, and the
Calc code relies heavily on dynamic variables everywhere. The code also uses
side-effects a lot. Rewriting it in a more modern, functional style would do
wonders for maintainability and correctness, but its size and complexity is
likely to make it quite an enterprise.

It will be merged in a few days. If not, please send a reminder.
