Re: A macro containing a mini-macro?

I don't quite follow; having a macro for the byte DSL is simple:

    (define-syntax byte-dsl
       (syntax-rules ()
        ((_ byte) (list byte))
        ((_ count byte) (make-list count byte byte))))

But this requires every byte specification to be written as `(byte-dsl 0x00)`, 
which I want to avoid in my test-case DSL. I want to be able to write

    (test-case 13 (#x01 #x02 (4 #xAB) #xFF))

This requires being able to match either `byte` or `(amount byte)` inside the 
test-case pattern.
