Good you mention, I was indeed just thinking that I had forgotten to
mention that the concurrency patch should be designed with the
assumption that all the code that natters can/will use lexical scoping
(i.e. dynamic let bindings of variables that are not buffer-local and
have no global value will be pretty much non-existent or not

Variables that are captured by a closure are (by definition) lexically
scoped, so they should not be affected by
buffer/thread/keyboard-localness which only applies to
dynamically-scoped variables.
