+1 for the simplification.  I should have used macros like that in the
first place.  There, committed.  Thanks Joe.

There are less checks to do.  Since memory allocation is one
of the core operations (in that there are so many of them), eliminating
cycles counts (IMO).  Ofcourse we'd need to do some serious profiling
to see if there is really speedup in the double-indirection.  For now,
with the new macros, the code should be readable enough not to warrant
rewrite with 'clearer', more verbose, list logic.
