ISTR that in lexically-scoped languages you usually have to load
an interface spec for a program before you can call it.
Maybe that is the right direction to go, for this.

Maybe it is possible to have a function 'lexical-require'
which is like 'require' except that, instead of _loading_ the
file require, it only prepares to call things in that file.
