I may be missing the point but is there anything incoherent about the  
declarations below?

(defun jl (x)
             (declare (optimize speed) (double-float x))
	    (let* ((sum x))
               (declare (double-float sum))
	    (dotimes (i 1000000 sum) (incf sum i))

The compiled version conses 1 cell and 24 bytes with ACL 8.0 and 72  
bytes with SBCL 0.9.9 on Mac OSX. OpenMCL must have an issue with  
this but it's not related to the "language of standard Lisp".

	Thanks, Joel
