It does have the disadvantage of variable capture, namely the "x" is
hardcoded in the Scheme function. I tried to return:

 (list 'unquote parm)
 (list 'eval parm)

instead, but this breaks interactive editing: e.g. typing '^' in math
mode doesn't make a superscript anymore, but a '^' character. The best
I could find is:

 (tm-define (my-scheme-macro parm perm)
   (:type (tree -> tree))
   (:secure #t)
   (with path (tree->path parm)
      (display* "\nparm(" path ")\n"))
   `(arg ,perm))

and call with:


Do you have a better solution?
