`C-x e' ends the definition; after that repeating `e' will call the macro.

E.g. in [C-x ( .... C-x e e e], the `C-x e' ends the macro and `e e' then
executes it twice.

Keeping C-x ) with the current binding (kmacro-end-macro) will have
the advantage that C-x ( .... C-x ) simply defines the macro, but it
cannot be called immediately by repeating ), 

i.e. with C-x ( ... C-x ) you can insert a `)' or `e' immediately
after defining the macro if you need to, whereas using C-x ( ... C-x e
does not allow you to insert an `e' immediately after defining the
