Well, I just "opened" my mind about the evaluate-once MIN/MAX:

If you assume that arguments to MIN/MAX may be evaluated more
than once, then evaluate-once MIN/MAX will work just as well.

It is very rare that you require SOME argument to MIN/MAX be
evaluated twice. In my experience, it is so rare that the
mistake of assuming that the arguments to MIN/MAX are only
evaluated once is more common...

(And on top of this, I haven't even looked into the type-related
consequences of the gcc approach...)

Anyway - having this said - there is still a need for an
ABS macro. :)
