I guess I'll have to read the discussion but, on the face of it, this seems 
like a no-brainer.  Without the possibility of local variables, 
<macrodef>'s usefulness is much degraded.  And if the thought is whether to 
wait until 1.7 because 1.6 is so near release, then move back the 1.6 
release.  There is no sense in introducing new features that don't work 
quite the way they should (and I'm also not saying that macrodef, and the 
like, should wait for 1.7 either).
