refactor implementation of environments

  • Need a current-lexical-scope? parameter
  • Need a contains-direct-eval? predicate for each function
  • When current-lexical-scope? is false, must use explicit scope chain
  • Features that affect current-lexical-scope?
    • with
    • direct eval
  • Implementation of eval will have to fake its environment
    • PLT won't allow inheriting
    • so implement with current-lexical-scope? set to false
    • this fits with my (admittedly rude and obnoxious) "punish with and eval" implementation philosophy
