Will this be available to user code utilizing DYNAMIC-EXTENT
declarations? And for the future: Would it be possible to autodetect
certain cases where this optimization would be safely applicable without
an explicit declaration? I am thinking of (mapcar (lambda ...) ..) and
similar calls to library functions.

You talk about creating these frames on the interpreter stack. Could you
elaborate on that? My simple idea would be to use alloca or perhaps you
use it internally?
