: just checking: Are anonymous macros allowed?

I have no problem with macros being first-class objects during
the compile.  Though the macro itself may have a problem with your
passing it '3' when it is likely expecting an AST.  But maybe 3 can
be taught how to be an AST if it needs to.  Probably means macros
are not only first class but MMD too.  :-)
