Indeed, it does.  I'm close to being convinced.  The final test is
going to be this: I'd like to implement test-and-exit in terms of a
new macro, namely, test, that takes arguments such as the test to be
performed, the if clause and the else clause.

This will show me how hard it is to define macros in terms of others.
If it's simple enough, you've got a buy in.

I must confess that I dislike AutoGen's syntax, heavily loaded with [=
and =], but I'm sure it's just a matter of getting used to it.  Named
arguments in macro invocations are sometimes a nuisance, but they can
also be a plus.
