[plt-scheme] auxiliary macros

After reading http://blog.plt-scheme.org/2007/07/control-resumed.html I
decided to look into prompt/control/%/fcontrol and the rest of the goodies
in control.ss

So based on the example from the blog post I did this python like snippet.

(require (lib "control.ss"))

(define (make-step)
  (define (body)
    (yield 1)
    (yield 2)
    (yield 3)
  (define (yield value) (control resume-here (set! _body_ resume-here)
  (define (generator) (prompt (body)))

I decided to look into turning it into a macro, such that the following ends
up being correct code
(define/y (step)
  (yield 1)
  (yield 2)
  (yield 3)

My problem is that I don't know how to define yield as a macro inside the
define/y scope, since it need to be able to access _body_, which is a
defined in define/y. All I come up with are various non-hygienic (and simply
broken) variations.

Can you point me to some examples doing something similar (and/or relevant

I know that there is generator.ss in planet, but for me this is a nice
exercise, since I'm trying to build some intuition about scheme macros. I
was avoiding them for too long...
