I'm a bit worried about macros.  For instance, can I define a
macro-defining macro using the syntax-rules language?  How can
it tell to which level a "..." belongs?  I also think we need
more time on the low-level mechanisms.  My least favorite at
present is the one in the Report.  But I could be wrong.  Perhaps
it's actually the best.
