I just realized that `flatten-begin` actually doesn't care if the form
starts with a `begin`. In other words, the following evalutes like this:

  (flatten-begin #'(a 1 2)) => (list #'2 #'3)

In which case the behavior of #:all? becomes a bit weird since it would
care about the head being a `begin` (otherwise it would collapse too
manay things).

Maybe the recursive flattener should be a different function after all?
