Woah fellas, I wasn't trying to start a flame war, I was merely commenting
that those who have not used Lisp don't really understand the power that
macros can have in a language (such as Lisp) that supports them, and where
code and data can be used interchangeably.  And I've never used TH so I
can't comment on that.  Don't worry, I'm on your side :)
