Just in case this isn't clear: dynamic binding is a complete, total  
misnomer in Scheme. We don't have dynamic binding in the classical  
Lisp sense, never had since 1986. A dynamic binding in Scheme is  
_temporary assignment_. So your sentence doesn't make sense. Perhaps  
it's clear to you, in that case ignore it. -- Matthias
