I haven't had time to give it a try. Seems to have quite many
dependencies, though.

Please submit the "fiddling" in the form of patches and I will
incorporate them in ECL.

The macroexpander for DESTRUCTURING-BIND forms is not very verbose and
by that matter the same happens to the code in destructuring lambda
forms, as the ones appearing in DEFMACRO. In order to make the code
small, the output is just a bunch of C[AD]*R forms with minimal error
messages. In those cases the best thing would be to load the code
_interpreted_ and spot the offending function as well as the argument
