Looks sane on the face of it, but I'll take a better look when I'm back home.

My one big WTF moment I already had was about your descriptions,
though. "Unroll"?

To quote the Princess Bride: "You keep using that word. I do not think
it means what you think it means".

Or at least it's a very unusual use of that word. Why doesn't the
explanation just say what it does: "move", and say from where to where
("from macro to definition" or something)?

Or "remove macro XYZ, expanding it in place", or something? To me,
"unroll" has a completely different meaning in computers.
