Fair enough ;-)

Introducing another macro lets me factor out the expansion of "bar",
but not the pattern itself. In my case, it would already yield some
benefits, so I'll keep this solution in mind if nothing better comes up.

But ideally, I would like to factor out the pattern itself, which in
my real application is more complex and consists of several cases.
