No, I'm trying to copy it over to the REPL. The idea is to try to evaluate 
the S-expression on its own. This doesn't work if one tries to evaluate it 
directly inside the function because typically it needs to use stuff 
(variables) that are defined by evaluations outside that expression. This 
works fine for self-contained expressions, but those are the exception.

Anyway, the idea of copying it over to the REPL is so I can modify it
