Yes, that's what I was talking about.

A good place to see how to use these is the implementation of that
macro.  (Note that it must be a macro.)

You can also look in my interactive hack for related useful
functionality.  For example:

  -> ,apropos flatt        ; (no pun intended, I swear!)
  Matches: flatten.
  -> ,describe flatten
  `flatten' is a bound identifier,
    defined in "scheme/list.ss"
    required through "scheme/init.ss"

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
