It is then left to the execution phase of the reepl (read-expand-execute-print loop) to evaluate that lambda expression and register it in the *syntax-environment*. Since the reepl always evaluates the top-level form right after expanding it, this gets the correct result in the end, but if you wanted your expand phase to produce an expanded form that could be executed separately, then this would be wrong. You would want you lambda form evaluated to a procedure and registered _by the expander_.
Thanks, yes, I also noticed that just two days ago. I'll propagate the fix to the next update.
