Thanks for posting this---it is probably acceptable to me.

I would prefer a variant with the following modifications relative to
your proposal:

- I'd prefer if the eval and run phases were the same.  As the imports
  themselves are determined statically, this allows `eval' to the same
  module state as the running code.  Separating them and thus having
  `eval' potentially instantiating modules all over the place, would I
  conjecture, be quite surprising to most users.

- I'd like to keep `eval-libraries' as an <impexp-form>, and turn
  `environment' back into a procedure that accepts an arbitrary number
  of arguments, each being an S-expression representing an

  This makes the set of libraries available to `eval' a bit more
  static than in your proposal (no macro-expansion), but the actual
  <import-specs> more dynamic (run time rather than expansion time).
