There is one discrepancy between texi2html and makeinfo I'd like to
keep, in texi2html a @macro can be recursively called, while in 
makeinfo it is only possible for a @rmacro.

Are there users relying on the fact that @macro cannot be called 
recursively? Would anybody miss this feature?

(Karl is ok with having @macro do the same than @rmacro).

This in part because I am lazy, but also because I think that it doesn't 
make sense to have that kind of check, the user should do it himself, and 
it is much more natural for @macro to be recursive, in my opinion.
