| Modern Common Lisp doesn't use dynamic scoping any longer. 

yes, it does.  however, the default is lexical scope, and you have to
request dynamic scope specially.

certain variables in Common Lisp are defined as dynamic (special) by the
standard, such as the *package*, *read-base*, *print-base*, just to name
three that are very frequently referenced while reading and printing.
