Subject Re: FW: local properties

Let doesn't scare me off too much, as it reminds me of Standard ML.

let x=lambda(f) ==>f+3;

And Basic, funnily enough:
  LET X=X=1;

I think if we use Let, then we are starting to look like a language with
the notion of 'environment' as lisp engines call it. In which case the
issue is not so much the terminology, but the formality: we ought to
come up with a rigorous, documented, defensible model for property
scoping.

Otherwise, well <localproperty> makes a lot of sense too.
