Hi Jacob,

why are you saying that local variables are necessary to make <macrodef>
useful ?

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).
