NAMED-LAMBDA looks like a total crock to me, but we use it anyway. It
is by far the simplest way for us to keep around the name (or I guess
the function spec) of a lambda for use by the debugger. I guess this
could be done with a hash-table or something, but that is gruesome.
Our plan was to just use this internally in evaluated DEFUN, but maybe
it would be better to inform the users of this.
