I'm not quite sure what your proposed source transformation was supposed to
demonstrate. How do you compile
(defun bind-x-then-call-f (x f)
(funcall f `(cons x x)))
given that anyone can do
(bind-x-then-call-f 'foo #'lexical-eval)?
Yes, but given lexical-eval as a special form, you couldn't do that.
Perhaps lexical-eval could substitute lexical values for the variables
in its argument, then eval the result?
