Yes, but that's not the scenario I had in mind.  What I had in mind is
a macro that, when run, will call start-kbd-macro etc.  It's clear
that such a macro cannot be easily defined using F3 and F4, but
perhaps some ingenious method with using some Lisp data in the
macro...

Anyway, if no objections come up in a few days, I will push this.

Thanks for the feedback.
