I now checked your patch. In general I like your patch.

However, at this time I refuse using `lexical-let' in `rst.el' for
backward compatibility. If your patch works without `lexical-let' then
go ahead. Otherwise please do not commit the patch to the Emacs main

PS: The Emacs development seems to be moving to GIT. For me this would
    be yet another VCS I need to learn (sigh). When this happens I
    might be unable to use the Emacs VCS for some time.
