I implemented Miles suggestion that C-x e end and executes the macro.
This is done by binding C-x e to kmacro-end-or-call-macro.

If you want to have the same functionality on C-x ), we can bind that
function there too.

BTW, that is exactly what I initially suggested (to you) to do, but
you explicitly requested that C-x ), and C-x e should continue to work
as they used to.

This is now a custom option kmacro-call-repeat-key.

If you don't like this, set kmacro-call-repeat-key to nil.
Maybe it should be the default setting?
