Bizarre. So, in the null-environment, everything behaves like
R6RS except for syntax-rules, which behaves like R5RS? And
the reason the null-environment's syntax-rules behaves differently
is not because it's a different macro, but because it doesn't
see "the-underscore". But then again, it won't be exactly like
R5RS's anyways because the patters language is different.
Forget about my ramblings. Who cares about the null-environment
