Counting is easy, but some days ago, you wrote

What are these exceptions you're  referring to?  How can I know
what they are?

Also I think there's a fair amount of code in the so-called "wild" that
probably relies on this heuristic.  Of course I think you understand
that removing the heuristic breaks some of it.  That's a price you're
probably aware of. Woudln't you consider breaking _less_ of it?


If you kept the heuristic for macros, I think you wounldn't break these^.

And many, if not all, of the problems of the bugs would still be
resolved, I think.
