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.
