I believe that even in Scheme there is a minimal amount of stuff in every
environment: the syntactically significant special forms. These include
define, let, lambda, if, set!

I've probably missed one or two, but so far as I know scheme provides no
means to remove these from the environment.

Jonathan Rees: if I am misinformed, I'ld very much appreciate clarification,
as there is an interesting environment binding problem lurking in here.
