I didn't mean to be disrespectful, and I don't think I was,
but I do apologize if it sounded like this...
But I am also entitled to my opinion, and this opinion is that any
solution that doesn't involve duplication is, by definition, cleaner
than one that does. Firthermore, I do think that the goal of
eliminating macros for the sake of eliminating macros is not a right
goal. Therefore, while deeply respecting the author of this proposal,
I simply think, based on his motivation, that this is a step
in the wrong direction.
I may be wrong, of course.
