Yes, but using it without parentheses means that I can't pass around the name of
the macro without it expanding prematurely. I'm not sure yet whether that
really matters, but it theoretically could. If something was evaluated to soon,
it could yield bad results *theoretically*. Of course, it would be easy to
define both:
