That's why internal defvar: exists.  Most of the time, this is what I
expect people will want and use, just like local variable definitions
in other languages (except done right, w/out bizarro scope-lifting

Unusually for you, your remark seems vacuous.  (P4P, and I quote::
"This is purely about syntax. The semantics of P4P is precisely that
of Racket."  Neil, and I paraphrase: "P4P forces you to know about the
semantics of Racket.")  So maybe I've missed your point.
