Wouldn't it be better to fix the sources that use this confusing form of 
macro invocation.  Reading this as a programmer it looks to me like you 
are trying to use an opcode called "foo.l" and not a macro called "foo" 
whose first argument is ".l".  ie wouldn't it be clearer to have:

    foo   .l, %d0, %d1
