While multiple macro systems are cool in a way in theory, in practice
its a mess. That along would be worth breaking compat. in a major way,
if only for sanity reasons, let alone for a good module system.

... I lament the loss of match, as I've become enamoured of
explicit-renaming macros with pattern matching. Will this still be
doable with matchable?

Aaaanyways, I say got for it. Its going to be a bit painful keeping 3
and 4 synced feature-wise - I'm thinking mainly of Ivan's 'sane unit
names' project here - until 3.x is ready to be pushed into early (or
not so early depending on how long it all takes) retirement, but well
worth it in the end.
