Re: "environment" unsuitable name for top-level environment



Hmm.  A top-level-`environment' is an environment and an
`environment-frame' is also an environment.  Both the environment and
the environment-frame are the implementation of the idea
"environment".  But they are implemented differendly.

We must tell people that the type `environment' implements top-level
environments and that `environment-frame' implements local
environments.

I think it is not uncommon that a particular implementation of an idea
has the same name as the idea.
