        (Actually, I would rather write
        but such is life.)
    FROTZ could be a macro that defines a gensym appropriately and
    returns it.  Now if there were anonymous macros like there are
    anonymous functions (i.e. LAMBDA), then it'd be even more

Maybe macro-operators, like operators, would be useful things
in a language.  (Operators, or functionals, take arguments and
produce a function.  A macro-operator would take arguments
and produce a parameterized macro.  Interesting idea...
