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.
