So... there is no way the compiler could ever warn the user that
they are using a lexical variable with the same name as a constant.
To put it briefly, I bet you can't show me a piece of Common Lisp code
that would cause such a warning.
The Spice Lisp compiler would object. Similarity between special
variables and constants is an implementation detail. The name names a
constant, the compiler knows this, the compiler complains.
