Saying (do.foo ...) instead of (foo ...) just makes it so that 'foo isn't in function position. That means the local variable 'foo will always be used instead of some macro named 'foo that happened to be defined in another library.

I remembered talking about this once and found the comment: http://arclanguage.org/item?id=11697

It looks like it would be an easy change to Arc to have local variables take precedence, though I haven't tried the patch myself.
