Ok, I've removed him from the list of addresses I'm sending this to.

To recap the discussion, I believe we were in the midst of discussing
the following sort of mechanism for specifying information for edebug
in a macro definition:

  (defmacro my-macro (arg1 arg2 ...)
    "This is a document string."
    (edebug-spec [this here is our macro specification])
    ([this here is our macro body]))

I haven't looked into how this might be implemented -- I presume this
would be a C-level and not Emacs Lisp-level thing.  Perhaps a
modification to something in src/eval.c?

Perhaps there are other ideas for how to associate macro specification
information w/ a macro definition...
