Good error message: Kudos to Franz

All the Lisps I know of warn you if you refer an unbound lexical variable. Allegro goes one better and looks in other packages:

Warning: Free reference to undeclared variable *random-generator* assumed special. This symbol may have been intended: cl-variates:*random-generator*.

All we need is a button that lets me add the package reference or import the symbol or whatever and Bob would be our uncle (which is a very weird but enjoyable saying!).
