You made the statement that the macros were considerably faster than the
current scalar.  That isn't true.  The macros that are currently
implemented are equivalant to the constant scalar.  The new macros that
implement things in binary time are faster than the current scalar, but
that has nothing to do with whether it is macro-ized or not, it is all
about the implementation.
