That seems to be the question you want to answer, but I don't think it
is the question others are really asking based on the fact that the CL
macro examples haven't obviously won many over. I explained in the
message to which you responded one approach that can be taken in order
to sell macros more effectively IMHO. I have no desire to debate the
merits of that approach, people can use it or ignore it as they see fit.
