It is just a reflection of how long some of the build blocks are. They
frequently let-bind variables and functions to achieve some particular
goal for the specific project. Since it is a one-time block, I don't
usually make it a function, and the code exists in a src block. "M-:"
isn't convenient for me in this scenario.
