; (and-let* <binding> ... <body>)  ==>  object
; (load-from-library "and-letstar.scm")
; Each <binding> has the form (<variable> <expression>) and binds
; the given <variable> to the normal form of <expression>.
; Like LET*, AND-LET* evaluates its <binding>s in sequence, so each
; <expression> is evaluated in an environment that includes all previous
; <binding>s of the same AND-LET*. Unlike LET*, though, AND-LET* returns
; #F immediately as soon as one of its <expression>s evaluates to #F.
; Only when all <expression>s evaluate to non-#F values, it evaluates
; <body> and returns its value. AND-LET* expands as follows:
; (and-let* ((<var1> <expr1>)   --->  (let ((<var1> <expr1>))
;            ...                        (and <var1>
;            (<varN> <exprN>))               ...
;   <body>)                                  (let ((<varN> <exprN>))
;                                              (and <varN>
;                                                   <body>))))
; This is only a subset of SRFI-2 AND-LET*.
; Example:   (and-let* ((a '((x . 1)))
;                       (a (assq 'x a)))
;              (cdr a))                   ==>  1
;            (and-let* ((a '((x . 1)))
;                       (a (assq 'z a)))
;              (cdr a))                   ==>  #f
