Doesn't every defun in CL establish a nil block?

What you're proposing looks pretty much exactly like CL...

(by "CL", note that I mean "Common Lisp", not "cl.el")

Which is fine of course, CL's block mechanism is nice.

Of course one question is:  what about returns out of lambdas?
Would/should they be supported, given that they need an entirely
different mechanism internally?
