Thanks for pointing that out.  But I'm still not happy with the current
implementation.  If the command is called interactively (within a
keyboard macro or not), INTERACTIVE-CALL is unconditionally set to t, so
the message will displayed.  Since the intent is to display the message
when the command is called interactively, even when it is called via a
keyboard macro, why not test for those conditions explicitly with
interactive-p and executing-macro respectively?
