If anyone has an idea for a replacement to eval-when, speak up. I
don't have any idea of anything that would be better. There seem to
be two main reasons people are upset with eval-when:
1] It is currently ill-defined.
2] It is hard to understand.
I believe that the first problem is fairly easy to fix; I suspect that
the second problem is inherent in the nature of the beast.
