Hi Richard,

I have not taken any design decision that excludes supporting dynamic
binding mode for the future.  I've been working on tasks that I consider
higher priority as completing the integration with Emacs and I'm
starting now with anonymous lambdas compilation.

We can always discuss the dynamic binding support but has also to be
considered that the performance uplift is expected to be smaller for
