    Of course, a novice can still achieve confusion when defining and
    redefining procedures using the simple DEFINE syntax.
    Furthermore, you have to explain the difference between variable
    references that are self references and those that are not.

I hadn't really thought that through.  Clearly the situation with
DEFINE can become arbitrarily complex with either semantics.

So I would like to retract my earlier statement in support of the
simpler semantics.
