Hmm The #' probably need to be moved to the left of the _expression_ and
there might be problems with phases in this analogy but I guess you saw
that I wanted to spin the function f on a syntax argument that contained
the binding of x done in the let which is not the case If you do a
The above idiom is not frequent to the point that special syntax is
needed, is it?
If you want to code your macros like Alex does in ice-9/match.scm then it's not a problem.
If you want to try another path using functions in stead of macros and working hard with #, and #,@
you will for complex macros like a matcher need to gensym by hand or destroy the readability of the
code. As illustrated by the simple example above. It's not that a devastating issue because I have coded quite a lot of CL macros before and can cope with gensymming, but I find it frustrating to know that there probably exists a better way.
