Yes, that's the proposal. Dynamic bindings in let only,
no mixing of dynamic and non-dynamic bindings in the same let,
the let is non-recursive, top to bottom.
I want to get rid of 'with' keyword too, but
I don't want to make this change unless Hugs makes it too
(or at least advertises an intention to do so). Gratuitious differences
are probably even worse than a spurious keyword.
the Hugs folk about this, but they are havn't had an oportunity
to reply yet.
