What is the retun-value of a function? A function might contain multiple
definitions and expressions, too. The value is the value of the last one.
Why not have the same deifinition for load? And if there are not
expressions, then, just let the value returned be undefined or whatever.
As (load) is defined in teh standard to return an undefined value, this
could very well be specified as an extenssion, without breaking the
standard. Perheaps as an SRFI?
