Hygienic macros aren't really my thing. I miss the fun of creating terrifying works of art with C macros.

@ayo Group of multi-line macro-functions, to make C look like Pascal…

…good luck debugging that after the first error…

And, if seriously, it may be used for automatic exit status checking and failure codes for example.

@amiloradovsky I've spent a lot of time writing and debugging large and tricky C macros, but while I recognize their uglyness and fragility, I've always found the process of writing and maintaining them pretty fun.

Could be a personality defect, I suppose.

@ayo I like to play with the shell and generally use tools inappropriately, not because it is easy, but because it is difficult…
Sure it isn't usually practical, I view it as just a puzzle game.

Personality defects? I certainly have some. But they're most likely not manifested through this…
