Having just read http://arclanguage.org/item?id=11621 I see now how badly Jarc's macro expansion is broken. I'll fix this ASAP.

Jarc wasn't designed to allow lexically bound macros, that is just an accident of the current (broken!) implementation.

Jarc originally had dynamic binding, which is why eval uses the lexical environment. I should have changed that when I ripped out the dynamic binding. I'll fix eval. I'd like Jarc to be consistent with arc3.1

Thanks! Definitely helps my figuring.
