macrodef sequential should be implicit





------- Additional Comments From peter.reilly@corvil.com  2003-11-14 16:27 -------
I am rejected this for three reasons:
1) there may be future tasks/types with the name element or attribute
2) It may be too easy to mix the attribute/element with the
   contents of the macro:

<macrodef name="show">
  <echo> a is ${a}</echo>
  <property name="inmacro" value="Set in macro"/>
  <attribute name="a" default="a an attribute"/>
  <x/>
  <element name="x"/>
</macrodef>

3) Making the mods would not be worth the gain.

Peter
