OK, I changed it back in my copy.  The totally hygienic versions are
still in there, just commented out.

Anyway, hygienic if* is basically "cond =>" and
hygienic repeat* is just dotimes in the opposite direction.
So no need to clutter things up.

I wonder if forms similar to 'and-let' would be useful?

(let-while ([v1 f1] ... [vn fn]) BODY(v1 ... vn))

(let-while ([it (todo foo)]) (bar-ing it))
