Yes.  It's really a pain to use such implementations.  I want a top- 
level which just lets me store things in ad-hoc variables.  I  
*definitely* do not want that to involve declaring a whole load of  
global special variables (usually with names like "X" and "Y" which I  
also use in function arguments and so on, and which thus cause obscure  
and hard-to-reproduce bugs in code).

I use Lisp because I want an environment which helps me, not one which  
gets in my way.  Having to declare everything in a conversatational  
environment is just a huge pain.
