Okay, thanks.

I'll give it a try-- thanks!

In my actual code, the reader is actually a JavaScript parser that 
generates prefab AST structs, and the compiler operates on those 
structs. At some point I could potentially change the structure of the 
compiler to actually use macros, but for now there's just too much code 
built around this architecture to change it.

Thanks as always for the fast turnaround,
