Why is tcl broken?

Nope. *best* is the Common Lisp Macro system, with Scheme/Dylan syntax
stuff a second best.  The notion of 'upvar' in Tcl makes my head
spin. :) Finally, AFAIU, a Tcl "macro" must run as an interpreter of
the spec. A Common Lisp (Scheme) macro is compiled into regular code
by read-time expansion.

Cheers
