This might be confusing.  'make-hash-table' always creates a new hash
table, it doesn't reuse the one that is also used by 'define'.  What
Mikael is saying is that the hash table that is used to store bindings
created with 'define' is also created by 'make-hash-table' and is not
some super special data structure.
