[Openmcl-devel] Initial bindings

This needs to be documented of course, but you want to use the macro

(ccl::def-standard-initial-binding name ...)

and it should be exported (possibly after being tweaked to be a bit
fitter for public consumption.)

Note that when you didn't quote the variable and its value was used, that
value had reverted to NIL; the PROGV in the new thread's startup code
complained that that wasn't a bindable symbol.  This needs to be caught
a lot earlier.
