At least this would have made it consistent with using globals when 'local' is dropped from the example below.

I thinks that 'local a, a' should remain valid, but I think the
meaning should change... Instead of defining two separate slots, I
think it should define one slot and then assign to it... I guess
that's a silly distinction in this case, but it's important in other

Does that make sense? Maybe I'm misunderstanding something... That's
pretty likely, actually...
