Drat!  I checked the parser to see if 'let' was a reserved word,
but not the lexical analyser.  As it happens, parse1.yrl doesn't
mention 'let' anywhere.  It's even worse than 'cond', because at
least parse1.yrl mentions that and hints at what it might once
have been going to become some day.

OK, ?Let it is then.
