    No, but without such a thing -- or some other approach like replacing  
    some of these macros with functions -- the ENABLE_CHECKING version of  
    these macros will evaluate arguments more than once.  As far as I  
    know, most if not all of the actual uses are cases where this doesn't  
    cause much trouble except perhaps for performance.

There isn't a pressing need to change them, so we will leave them

Please, everyone, stop suggesting changes merely because they might be
improvements.  That's not a sufficient reason to suggest a change now.
We need to focus on the work that NEEDS to be done: fixing bugs,
and tuning the new features.

Please see etc/FOR-RELEASE.

I am always a day behind in answering email.   I therefore ask
the others on this list to help focus activities, by reminding
people of this policy faster than I can.  If you see someone
make a suggestion which is not about fixing a bug or tuning a new
feature, please respond by saying, politely, that now is the
wrong time to propose such issues and would people please
refrain from further discussion of the inappropriate proposal.
