   For the multi-variable case we use with, and even there we
   only need one pair of parens:

   (with (x 10 y 3) ...)

I believe the downside of this approach is an example such as:

  (with (x w y z a b) ...)

where it's could be easy (especially with less-trivial variable names)
to be mistaken about which were the variables being bound and which
were the expressions being evaluated.  So I think there's a tradeoff
