While updating hu.dwim.walker to work with the current
environment structure, I have found a serious bug in ecl:

> (defun test ()
    (let ((a 5)) 
      (declare (special a))
      (flet ((x () a))
        (let ((a 10))

> (test)

> (compile 'test)

> (test)

This happens because lexical special declarations are
not supposed to propagate to inner bindings. This appears
to fix it properly:

         ;; Fixme! Revise the declamation code to ensure whether
         ;; we also have to consider 'GLOBAL here.
         (and v (eq (var-kind v) 'SPECIAL)))))
