I would have prefered to see the FUNCTION + 'return' personnally.
But, I think I get your point : local unnamed macro function can be generated easily from your local named function. I made some tests to check and this seems ok for me, as long as several local classes can share the same name in a function.
Here is an example of what I mean :
something.that = 1;
something.those = "";
This use 2 local classes with the same name. It did compile under VS2008, however is it tolerated in C++ standard ?
If not, I would prefer that you provide an unnamed local function macro which does not require the user to write once more the name of the function in LOCAL_FUNCTION_END(nameOfTheFunction). This is doable (see the first code I sent you), and would allow to write the name of the function only once, and not require it several times as in your actual LOCAL_FUNCTION macros.
