If `load' and `eval-region' just bound the variable `use-lexical-binding'
to itself (e.g., (let ((use-lexical-binding use-lexical-binding)) ...)),
Then (use-lexical-binding) could expand into (setq use-lexical-binding t),
and the interpreted version of `let' could key off that...(!)

Of course, this leaves the question of what something like `eval-defun'
should do (although, I think this is a general problem that may be worth
fixing for other reasons too, though I can't recall them at the moment).

Suburbia: where they tear out the trees and then name streets after them.
