Macros in Dylan

Greetings All,

    Apple's Dylan language incorporated a Macro system that distinguished between Definition Macros, Statment Macros, and Function Macros (which seemed to have distinct hooks in the Dylan grammar itself) along with a few other interesting features like a provision for intentionally violating hygiene.

    Has anyone on the list made use of those facilities, and if so, could they comment on any lessons we might draw from the Dylan experience?
