Right. So then after-exec becomes (keeping the presumably-intended variable capture)

  (mac after-exec (fnname args . body)
    `(let old ,fnname
       (redef ,fnname ,args
         (let result (old ,@args)
And your uses of redef when you aren't redefining a function should be changed to = (e.g., in shadow).

It might still be cool to toggle safeset warnings. With Arc's single namespace, it's annoying to

  (load "foo.arc")
just to have it spit out redefinition warnings. But silencing safeset isn't really the answer to that problem.

Yes. When I updated anarki I decided to just do

  (= redef =) ; how pretty!
It seems plausible to want redefs to look different from defs.

Disabling these warnings on reload is useful, but a separate use case. I tend to ignore them on reload, but I don't want to see them when I startup lest I start ignoring them altogether.
