They work in scheme, and typed scheme
and a different hygienic mscheme is used in dylan
Both are based on pattern matching rewrite rules. Integrating a
similar macro system in haskell should be possible, but definitely not
trivial - how will it interact with the type system?
Haskell is already halfway there, Template Haskell provides a platform
to base them on
