A proposal for R7RS, to fix the underlying issue here, and restore the
full power of Scheme macros:
It could be specified that R7RS implementations provide a partial
expansion tool, which expands any code outside library forms to library
forms, using a set of (Scheme) macros specified when the tool is run.
It would be an error for any code to fail to expand to a library form.
"Dumb" text processing tools (sed et al) could then operate on this
partially expanded code.
