Extent of function definition created by FLET/LABELS

    Is the following legal CL:

    (funcall (labels ((foo () (print "hello"))
		      (bar () (foo)))

I'm very surprised CLtL does not say that the functions created by FLET
and LABELS have lexical scope (I think it does say that) and indefinite
extent (that's what it doesn't say).  Page 37 does say "most Common Lisp
data objects have indefinite extent."  I think you will find most
implementations will interpret FLET and LABELS to have indefinite
