you can't, the macros are supposed to be a simplified syntax for the
most common use case, not replace using the 'transaction' class

if you want to provide a macro syntax that covers every use case you
can think of I'm ok with that(although I'd still prefer using
'transaction' directly in those cases).
just try not to confuse users who only want a simple syntax with stuff
like (_), having to understand implementation details or having to
choose from multiple macros based on where they are used (nested or

I guess the only way to achieve that is 2 seperate sets of macros.

let me know what kind of support from RMs/TMs/transactions you need
for these macros.
