reexport doesn't reexport implicit syntax exports

Description (last modified by Moritz Heidkamp)

Given a module that exports some syntax which expands to an identifier which isn't explicilty exported, that syntax will not work if it is reexported by another module. Example:

;;; foo.scm

(module foo


(import scheme)

(define-syntax some-implicitly-used-syntax
  (syntax-rules ()
    ((_ x) x)))

(define-syntax some-syntax
  (syntax-rules ()
    ((_ x)
     (some-implicitly-used-syntax 'x))))


;;; bar.scm

(module bar


(reexport foo)


To trigger the bug:

$ csc -s -J foo.scm 
$ csc -s -J bar.scm 
$ csi -R foo -p '(some-syntax bar)'
$ csi -R bar -p '(some-syntax bar)'

Error: unbound variable: some-implicitly-used-syntax

This was tested with version only so far.

Given that automatic export of implicitly referenced identifiers is an undocumented feature of the module system as of now, this ticket should be considered a feature request instead.

This seems to work now. Probably due to the fix for #1149.
