in thread Macros, LFSPs and LFMs

Another application that just popped into my mind - albeit not one that necessarily needs the full power of LISPish macros: real assert()s. And while they don't need it, they too can exploit the full power of macros, by being able to grok the assertion code similar to the way I outlined for the ok() function in tests.

Makeshifts last the longest.
