I agree, compiling and running in the same environment is just
something that users need to be aware of if they are the type that
like to debug their code using COMPILE-DEFUN in their ZMACS buffers,
as compared with the type that like to make a couple changes in their
sources and do MAKE-SYSTEM :COMPILE. If it were not for global special
declarations, macros, defstruct, defflavor and the like there really
wouldnt be much difference in semantics between the two styles.
That the implementations usually go to a bit of trouble to avoid
certain screws with defmacro and defflavor is nice of course.
