'context' is related but different than 'scope'.  I think Argiris' fix  
is the right one for this, but we still have the scope issue.

What do you suggest here Neil?  Right now we walk up the scope chain  
and insert the implicit definition at global scope, which prevents it  
from getting popped off the scope chain.  Is it best to mark it  
somehow as being locally defined or something, or is it best to remove  
it from the global scope chain when popped?

Alternatively, perhaps it shouldn't be added to global scope.  This  
would make diagnosing the undefined cases harder, but they could be  
handled with other hacks.
