A slippery slope, this proper lexical scoping...

It's a sound proposal, but what about backwards compatibility?  How much
code is out there doing "function x()" at the top scope and expecting to
generate a global?

Someday it would nice to have a mechanism for gradually introducing
incompatibilities like Python's "__future__" module
