Every time I want to use 'expand' I have to spend 10 minutes trying to remember all of the pieces.  This appears to me to be about the shortest way to use 'expand' correctly:

(parameterize ([current-namespace (make-base-namespace)])
    '(module foo scheme       
       (define a 3)
       (+ a 4)))))

Would it be appropriate to add this (or a simpler form, if it exists) to the 'expand' documentation? It would certainly have helped me.
