I'm not particularly attached to installing them in phase 0.
My main goal is to provide user-defined transforms, so all I really
need is a definition form of some sort that is accessible in the base
In short, if a "define-with-transformer" form can be provided without
having to install the mutable table in phase level 0, that solves the
problem just fine.
