This looks quite close to what I'm looking for -- thanks!

However, when trying to adapt it with the `eval-after-load' form:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defmacro my-with-eval-after-load (file &rest body)
  `(let ((loc (when (bufferp standard-input)
                (with-current-buffer standard-input
                    (forward-sexp -1)
                    (when (search-forward "(my-with-eval-after-load" nil t)
                      (1+ (count-lines (point-min)
                                       (match-beginning 0)))))))))
     (eval-after-load ,file
         (message "BEG Running block at line %S..."
         (message "END Running block at line %S..."

(my-with-eval-after-load "org"
  (message "Quite early!"))

  (message "one...")
  (my-with-eval-after-load "org" (message "greetings earthlings"))
  (message "two...")
  (my-with-eval-after-load "org" (message "that's all for now"))
  (message "three..."))

(my-with-eval-after-load "org" (message "Quite late?"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I do have the error:

  cons: Symbol's value as variable is void: loc

when evaluating it... and I don't understand what I got wrong.

Best regards,
