OK, I have no problem with that (actually, I started with that). However, it's
not that analogous. This is not really about splicing a list.

Actually, after sending the mail and realizing that the sequence would always be
not just \@ but \@(, I thought (and think) that perhaps simply \( would be
better. This is about passing a list. So I'd propose that.

 C-M-% RET abc RET \("<xyz>" "</xyz>")
