This is now. Please make no checkins to the release22-maint branch
unless you're an Appointed Wizard (me, Jack, Tim, Fred) or have been
asked to by an Appointed Wizard.
Especially given the -checkins situation.
Very clever implementation techniques are required to implement this
insanity correctly and usefully, not to mention that code written
with this feature used and abused east and west is exceptionally
exciting to debug. -- Erik Naggum on Algol-style "call-by-name"
