One could certainly perform this kind of thing in empy, but I'm not sure
of how much use it would be.  I'm not quite seeing how to integrate such
functionality into a tool unless it was specifically designed for it. 
(empy is the arbitrary embedding of Python code in template text, not
for this particular type of macro operation in particular.)
