     I will file a wishlist request. I'm trying to build some stub and banner
     tables and thought it would be possible to write a macro to do this, but
     it does not sound like that will be a possibility right now.

From what I can infer from the spss community, the "macro"
functionality is considered anachronistic.  For new code, they seem to
recommend using the Python interface.  

Which do you think should have higher priority for PSPP?
